John Brown Posted October 6, 2010 Share Posted October 6, 2010 I've spent the last few months cutting down a conifer hedge that ran across the back of the garden. It had been allowed to grow to a great height and was unmanageable because of its width. It was planted about 2 metres inside my garden but because it had grown so big it reached the wallI've planted young privets much closer to the boundary wall ( dwarf wall with wire mesh fencing on the top to six foot ) but I've now got the distinct feeling that there are rules about hedges that run between properties. I was more concerned in maintaining privacy for both families ( they have a pool just the other side of the wall ) and will keep the hedge trimmed in line with the top of the fence. I can trim both sides of the hedge and hopefully it will look alright. I have involved my neighbour in the work so he knows what I've been doing. He speaks no English and my French is basic stuff but we get by.Another neighbour has now said we might have problems if next door ever sell and move.Our house was built over 100 years before next doors and the wall belongs to me.
