I have ivy growing into my roof from the next door garden. I say garden - it's a wilderness. The ivy is all over their roof, but that's their concern.
Everything there has not been touched in about five years.
My gardener has had go from a ladder on my side, but hasn't managed to reach the stems that go to the roof. He has cleared the ivy on my wall. And a bit further, which I didn't ask him to do but will delay its growing back.
Now the additional problem. This couple next door are so reclusive they don't answer their door and haven't answered my recent notes re the ivy. I haven't seen either of them for about three months....this is a source of worry sometimes, but she has put washing out of the window - hung on the gutter (!) recently so I know they are alive!
I offered for my gardener to go round and sort it. No response.
This is preventing me from getting all my gutters fixed.
I was going to try the CAB, but have not managed to get to talk to them, and their system seems much less user-friendly than it was a few years ago...
any ideas please?
