When I first opened this post I thought an eye saw was some sort of relative of the saw fly! Duhhhh you meant eyesore
Busy Lizzie, I like that rustic trellis. Definitely an idea worth of copying and something I will do to hide where I've a bit stuff I would like to seclude.
With regard to the OP: When it comes to disputes with neighbours it's always preferable to try to settle things amicably and by mutual agreement. It's really not a good idea to plan to go to war or to try to "outfence" or call in troops such as the council until you have made every effort to do things by consensus.
Being at war with neighbours is expensive, stressful and remember for every winner there's a loser. You don't want to get into that situation.
It's always difficult when there's change too and the arrival of the new people and removal of their shed meant just that. It's a shame you'd not erected a fence on your boundary side instead of using the shed when you did your planting but that's called "hindsight".
Sounds like it's time for some creative and fast growing soft landscaping and a cup of tea and a chat with your new neighbours.
