My garden is separated by a half fence, shoulder height, from my neighbour, guy upstairs. I've worked really hard on my garden, it's all neat and tidy with nice new plants in, that are doing really well, just a small section at the back to do, which I will try to complete at the weekend as no visit from my DD&GC as they are away. Worked for about 4hrs on Tues in the garden, hard work, which I can only do if I'm not working in the evening, otherwise I'd be too tired.
Next door's I thought was nice, bit of a wild garden but grass neat and tidy. Found out that was because the people I bought from had a gardening co. in to do their and next doors garden before putting it on the market.
Now his grass is about 3ft high!, problem is because there is a gap in the fences at the top of the garden and at the bottom, allowing me access to the side passage and garden gate which we share, my little dog goes bounding over there and is head & shoulders under the grass. There could be snakes or rodents, ticks & fleas etc. There used to be lots of cats using his garden to do their daily poos before my little dog scared them off.
From my living room & dinning room I can see my garden, which is a pleasure to see, with lovely lights, a bird bath with a fountain., lovely tree which I've just bought some 'fairy doors' gnomes & mushrooms and all that type of stuff to delight my GD when they next visit. But then when I look out of my kitchen window, two big full size widows, I see next doors, which is now really bugging me.
I did say to my neighbour 'when was he thinking of mowing his lawn?' that's when I learnt about the gardeners coming in. Yesterday morning I handed him a card that had come through the door, he must have got one too, for garden maintenance no job too small I said 'get them in to sort out your garden^ In the afternoon he pulled up about 5ft x 5ft patch of grass, revealing that he's pathway was actually twice as big underneath all that grass. Moved his wheelbarrow down and filled a plastic bag with the grass cuttings, making it even more unsightly from my kitchen window!
I fear he's waiting for me to tackle it, which I really don't want to do, it's hard work, it's not my garden and I feel I have enough to do on my own. What to do??
