Unhappy with new fence - doesn't match old

Posted: 01/09/2014 at 09:17

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.

Baddie stick insects. Goodie hornets.

Training/Pruning this honeysuckle?

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.

What plants are they; what's the soil like; aspect; have you watered them much?

I have plenty of gardens with Leylandii hedges - none of them are aggressive!

It might have been imported with the tree - did you buy it this year?
