How do I complain to my neighbour who is doing me a favour?
Isle of Wight, United Kingdom
My neighbour has kindly offered to replace the fence along our boundary. I have plants situated about 2ft away from the fence, however some of my newly planted shrubs have been trampled. The one I am most upset about is a rare Pseudopanax leesonii purpurea which was about 2ft tall and has been snapped off at soil level, the other was a purple hebe given to me by Spritzhenry which has had several branches snapped. I am a little baffled as they are planeted quite far from the fence. The Pseudopanax was given to me by the curator of Ventnor Botanical Gardens and will be pretty difficult/expensive to replace. I am pretty devastated/spitting nails!! But this guy who is like a bull at a gate is really doing us a favour. I am really cross at the moment, but how do I broach this??
