Neighbours Hedge
« on: April 16, 2017, 06:24:45 PM »
Just curious if anyone has any tips on dealing with a neighbors hedge which is in dire need of trimming on our side. Is it my responsibility to cut it back, or should I approach them to do it? Also if I trim it back should I throw the cuttings back over their side into their garden?

It's a conifer hedge about 60ft in length, 8-9ft high. and probably over 4ft deep. Any advice would be appreciated.

Found this info Mick
When you can trim hedges or trees
You can trim branches or roots that cross into your property from a neighbour’s property or a public road.

You can only trim up to the property boundary. If you do more than this, your neighbour could take you to court for damaging their property.

If you live in a conservation area, or the trees in the hedge are protected by a ‘tree preservation order’, you might need your council’s permission to trim them.

Thanks Les, I'll have a read through that info. 

The boundary fence on that side of the garden should be down to me, but you can't even see what's left of the wooden fence that was there.  It's been completely overtaken.

Looks like I'll be firing up the chainsaws real soon.  ;)
