Is our hedge destroyed?
Hi everyone, this is my first post, I've joined up as I haven't a clue about gardening and specifically need to find a solution or information. Basically, my girlfriend and I bought our first house in July after a long slog of scrimping and saving. It has nice big front and back gardens and in the front there is a 6' hedge between ours NAND the neighbours garden and it wraps around to the front (between ours and the pavement). It was part of what attracted us to the house as it felt like our own little back garden in the front if you know what I mean? Here's the problem. We came back from shopping about a month after buying the house and the neighbour was just finishing off cutting the whole thing in half!! I couldn't believe what I was seeing to be honest, but not wanting to have any neighbour disputes I didn't say anything. It's entirely our property as well, it's completely on our side of the fence. Anyway, I was wondering if it's going to grow back or if she's killed it, and if it might grow back, how long might it take and is there a anything we can do to speed up the process? It looks horrible now and people walk passed staring right into our living room. I don't know what type of hedge it is I'm afraid, if you need pics or more info just ask! Thanks in advance, Dave
