Screening neighbour's ugly extension

Posted: 04/07/2014 at 07:03

Hi teenrbee.  What about a stilted hedge?  have a look on, click on "trees for a purpose", "hedging".  May give you some ideas.

I have a similar screening need. My plan isn't a stilted hedge but to use two such trees further apart, in in from the boundary to distract from the view.

Morning Dove, Morning Woody (is it ok to call you that?) Yes, Dove, having read all that I was about to launch in with my pennythworth.  But as you say, for another time/ thread!  Passionate topic!

Oh Clari, tricky situation!  Sorry, posts crossed - there's me waffling on about mowing and watering when I should have been sending you a hug.

Dont know what sort of business you do - is there anyway you could agree on taking a cut of whatever you bring in, as a temporary contract until they can offer a regular salary.  At least that way you dont get taken for a ride.

Beautiful Dove.  I love daylilies and that colour is gorgeous.  A lovely memory too.

If you're doing the lawns can you do mine too?  Weds is mow and feed day but have been really tired this week (must be something going round) so didn't last night.  Managed to water the dahlia pots but nothing else this morning so bit concerned what I'll get back to, so if while you're mowing you can do a bit of watering too, then that'd be appreciated. And tomato feed is in the garage.  Scissors for deadheading roses are in the greenhouse. Ta

Oh would love to Dove, but we've got so much work on, if I suggested it, they'd drag you in to join us!  

I have clay soil too, chicky. But I also have an unheated greenhouse so may follow your and WGWboy's example.  Thinking I could put the pots standing in a border.

Morning Dove.  We must have synchronised our get up.

My garage is near Norich Notcutts so that would be my choice for morning mooching.

Morning!  Do you guys leave agapanthus in the ground all year round?

Not convinced that the polythene would help the wood, Dove - would have thought it would hold the damp in. See the point about stopping preservatives though.
