Neighbour garden issues
Hi, I have joined in desperation, thinking gardeners will know what to do ( i hope)! Long story short - neighbour has lived, as have i, in house since new, whilst I have nurtured mine, they have left to nature ie done nothing. 17 years later - seriously impacting on my garden, our jointly owned fence and indeed other neighbours (mice)! in storms earlier this year, two fence panels fell down, i have left notes, nothing, until a couple of weeks ago i spoke directly to neighbour who told me they could not afford fence repairs (dont work, on disability), couldnt clear garden (as bad back) - kindly told me i could clear and fix fence. we have joint responsibility for fence on house deeds. Neighbours garden is so bad, i have 6 ft fences, the brambles/weeds whatever they are - are at least 3 ft over my fence - there is a 40ft tree at the end of their garden and it is even over growing into the parking area. i have pictures if anyone can help - i am in despair and do not know what to do - i have had a quote to fix fence, happy to pay and get done, yet see no point if neighbours garden is in such a state - even mice early in the morning, my neighbour has even laid traps in their loft! I have emailed the council tonight, however, we are not "adopted" by the council so i hold little hope that they can help and i have no idea what to do next (neighbour despite stating cannot afford, has just had bt broadband, has sky, runs a car, and does a massive weekly shop in sainsburys each friday - not exactly aldis)! hoping someone can help me!
