My neighbors Tree and hedges are planted so close to the boundary, that they the tree/hedge leans against my fence (I own the boundary fence).
The fence is starting to buckle and bow towards my garden and looks unsightly.
I've not really had much to do with the neighbors and haven't approached them yet as they are quite new. I'm not sure on the rules regarding hedge cutting, when it's not my plant but invading my property/ Destroying it.
The hedge itself, gives privacy to both gardens. I think it is leylandii and planted many years before they move in. I want to trim it but I'm concerned the neighbor will just say "No" and it becomes a hostile issue between us.
Any advice on this would be helpful,
