Garden fence

B I U ☺

  • My neighbour is pushing my climber attached to my fence/trellis off the trellis and back into my garden. Is this legal? How do I resolve this?

    Is the climber spreading over the fence and into his garden?  If so, and if he doesn't want this to happen he's entitled to cut off any parts of the plant which is encroaching on his space.  Perhaps he sees pushing it back as less likely to offend you than cutting it.

    Have a word with him ... give him permission to prune off stray branches etc with your blessing ... or make a point of trimming off the wandering tendrils yourself.

    Good neighbourly relations are worth their weight in gold and it would be a shame to fall out over a rambling honeysuckle.

  • Thank you. I have a new garden as does my neighbour. I put in new treliis along the top of my fence and she has planted climbers all along. .the honeysuckle climber is new and a few tendrils are looped around the trellis and I think she is making a statement that she wants that space for herself. It is my fence and trellis and I'm trying really hard to stay cool about the situation. I think I will speak to her later when things have cooled a bit.

    We have a similar fence with trellis at the top ... our honeysuckle mingles with next door's roses as they both weave in and out of the trellis and we both get the benefit of both ... plants aren't territorial image
