Hi everyone. We're in the process of selling our house and all seemed to be going ok until yesterday. The estate agent relayed a request from our purchasers: when they move in the want to pave the whole front garden to make standing room for their caravan and vintage Cadillac (seriously!). In connection with this, they've asked us to cut back the hedge and prune back or remove the (very well-established) shrubs in the garden as, I quote "They don't have time to do it"! Am I being unreasonable to say no? They saw what the garden was like when they put in their offer. By the way, the hedge and shrubs aren't running rampant - we keep them reasonably pruned to complement our currently lawned garden.
