LEYLANDII HEDGE REMOVAL

Posted: 02/09/2012 at 16:15

@hedge help.. if they are on your side of the fence they are yours to do with as your please.. if the are a boundary hedge then you have to see who it belongs to as suggested.. but you say on your side of fence.. so cut away as you please.. enighbour can do nothing about it.. and there is some form of law i think about leylandi and height etc.. must look that up.

As for the dispute.. that is only if the police have been involved i believe could be wrong.. and if it is stated it was abaout removing a huge nedge of these things there will be no problem i think.

I have gone down to 5 feeders for mo.. and they have wild bird seed in the fav at the moment and suet pellets, and sunflower hearts.. do not do peanuts as they never got eaten.. i have taken some pictures of the bird feeders i said about and how esy they are to clean..

@mollycatshirley.. i was also wondering that aobut his garden.. is it empty for rest of the year.. very boring is so.. i would much rather have colour all year..

i am totally unable to leave a bare space in my garden empty for long so i just couldnt cope with leaving it all bare to plant dahlias once a year..
