ivy damaging lime and mortar wall
neighbour has merrily been growing ivy on a lime and mortar garden wall that is owned by us. It is not a shared wall.
A few years back when the ivy was only a short distance along the wall I asked for it to be removed during their garden renovation works and the guy doing the works happily pulled it off. Whether pulling was a good idea or not, as he followed it with a comment saying that section of the wall didn't look too good.
The neighbour chose to regrow the ivy along the full length of the wall. Somewhere along the way I spoke to the neighbour with my concerns that it was damaging the wall. The neighbour pointed out the obvious that it is an old wall. Well yes it is lime and mortar, but it was in pretty reasonable condition. But now if my eyes do not deceive me, it is starting to lean!!!
Older and wiser I now realise that their ivy might be considered a trespass?
