I can tell you from first hand experience that you have NO right even to touch your neighbours fence, especially as you indicate that they are not normal neighbours!!
So, let it be, they are within the LAW to verbally abuse you over the issue.
By the way, the police will NOT help you even if they make your life hell (" ....it's a domestic issue madam...")
So beware! Keep well away, life's too short. Just enjoy your garden.
