Thank you Terratoonie that is very sweet of you .☺ The officer came out about the over hanging trees he has tried to contact the church but they have not replied to his email. So I wont hold my breathe.

13 May, 2018

Thank you Janey because I have such big plants not many weeds grow as they cast shade the few that do I hoe where I can reach my daughter gets where I can't.

Thank you Paul so pleased you like my plants and pathway with the arch and view.

13 May, 2018

 

Wow. Like others have said. It is no wonder your housing officer was impressed and must have been lovely for you that he wanted to take a photo. Got my fingers crossed that he does manage to get the church to do something about their trees. You have some wonderful plants and I just love the architecture of your garden.

14 May, 2018

 

Oooh thank you for the link 3p, I just looked it up and there are whole episodes so I will enjoy watching those inbetween other things whoohoo! :D x

Thank you Aleyna so pleased you like it. ☺

Your garden looks lovely 3d, its a credit to you and your family, lovely choice of planting, I don't believe you'd do that if the church do nothing, you obviously love it too much, lol, can understand your frustration though...

16 May, 2018

 

Thank you Lincslass I would rather my plants have a good home rather than Sycamore trees and bind weed kill them thank you for you understanding my frustration. I. feel more for the lady opposite where her little girl has to play on her trampoline while pigeon mess all over it which will cause her auto emmune disease or consumption.

16 May, 2018

 

My dad had a problem with a tree that was just over his boundary at the top of the garden, it was a Sycamore and the seedlings grew all over the place, even right down near the house and he had an enormous garden, if you happen to miss one they are very tough to remove, surely the council would have to do something about the pigeons because of the health issues, she wants to report it to the Enviromental Health Department, especially if its close to her house and windows...

Beautiful ! xxx

16 May, 2018

 

Same here like your dad had Lincslass we even get them in the front garden and last year 4 to 5 houses down in the back and front guttering was full of them and gardens the only reason the housing office sent the officer out incase it blocked their guttering the lady the back of me reported it last year but nothing was done the officer said he could nt catch them at the church last year so I am not holding my breathe.

I doubt our council health and safety will do any thing either like most councils they are only interested in getting money from us all they have just fined their own drivers in vans that belong to the council because they forgot to re knew their parking permit around the City when asked about the council paying the fine and where will the money go they refused to reply when asked again they said the drivers will pay .
I shall try the health and safety and see what happens they moaned having to keep coming out for the rats coming in my garden from the church yard.
