It would help if there was a picture of it on their website.

Unhappy with new fence - doesn't match old

Posted: Yesterday at 20:29

I think we should kill one myth now: there is a convention that you put the posts of your fence on your side of it (in other words, out of goodwill, you show the neighbour the 'best' side) but this is only a convention and doesn't denote legal ownership and responsibility for the fence. The only way to find out ownership of the fence is to look at the property deeds or, failing that, further investigation by a solicitor.

Unhappy with new fence - doesn't match old

If the original fence has been properly tanalised you would not necessarily want to stain it (and you would be lucky to match the extra fencing) and you would expect the additional fencing to be the same colour if you ordered it to match. Do as others have said and go back to the builders in the strongest terms and demand  replacement. They will play you, hoping to get away with it. It's a complete mess as it is.

Training/Pruning this honeysuckle?

Posted: 31/08/2014 at 11:39

I cut my honeysuckle down to four inches in spring because it had a bad flowering season in 2013 and was getting rampant - it's flowering like a good'un now.
