Nothing can grow at the bottom of my garden. The neighbour's Leylandii trees are tall and spindly and the roots stick out of the ground on my side. I've added some photos I took in the summer after pulling some of the roots out. You can see how tall they are. There are 5 planted too close together they're thinning out at the bottom. I cut the over hanging branches back to the fence as they become even more intrusive. The grass is gone and I get dust all summer and mud all winter due to having 2 dogs. They're nice people and none of us can afford to remove these trees. I've decided to slab that area but know it's pointless as the roots will push it up. Can anyone recommend an affordable barrier? It seems we'll have to dig a trench... cut through roots and put a barrier along the border to stop roots growing into our side... We'll let the neighbours know as I'm sure it will destabilise the trees..(my garden slopes downwards and his house is lower than mine). I'd hate to cause any danger or problems but what else can i do?
