Front hedge needs cutting problem with neabor

Posted: 13/10/2013 at 17:46

Thank you for all your advice  I cant contact the landlord as I dont know his phone number the chap next door is away all week and his wife works shifts  but the adjoining hedge is an eyesore and I always have to sweep the front slabs as leaves collect on it I went halves with my previous neabor to have the front paved which looks lovely as we had a lawn before

The hedge was put in by wimpy when they did this estate

Waterbutts yes our cul de sac is lovely and clean now  our adjoining hedge is growing to tall and I cant view the road as I use to its a good job i can view whos at the door on my left side window as I never answer the door  before looking 

Front hedge needs cutting problem with neabor

My neabour has a hedge next to mine in the front of our terraced house  his house is  let I used to pay out for a gardener to cut the hedge properly  then I asked the landlord asking him why doesnt he keep the hedge trimmed as well he told the residents todo it which was done properly a few times now hes let the hedge grow taller than mine which looks stupid 

The chap next door hasnt done it for months I would like it cut evenly across have I got the right to get a gardener to cut theres as well

Any advice welcomed

Hi All

 

The road sweeper swept the cul de sac twice this week I put a note in all the neabours doors one never moved there car  anyhow I met the road sweeper  I said you have a job on clearing up all the leaves I said why wasnt it done before  he was told it was a garden area then  he said another time he was told it was tarmacked which he could see it wasnt 

Anyhow I am pleased thats sorted at last  also thanks for your replies

Yes what a surprise after the emails I sent the council  who said they wont clean the culdesac  as its private land  

Ive seen the road cleaner and road sweeper   perhaps they do it alternately

Hi All

 

I had brilliant news today after complaining to the council who got in touch with colus who called on me this morning he sorted   out my problems and phoned back to say our cul de sac should be swept  so he never said why it wasnt swpt before so he said they will spray the area with weed killer and sweep it every week its made my day

Pays to complain doesnt it
