Next doors 20+ yr old ivy bush consumed the fence between our properties. We didn't realise how bad it was until we cut back about 1 ft of branches extending into our garden. The fence was in a terrible state with several gaping badger, fox and cat access points.
We aimed to build a robust fence panel feat. concrete kicker into the existing concrete posts to avoid;
- The need to remove / disturb next doors ivy
- Future ivy intrusion
- Badgers and foxes destroying the fence + entering garden
Unfortunately the flimsy and rotten fence was structurally integral to the ivy and on removal the entire bush collapsed. We have lost the friendship of our neighbour but gained a solid boundary. Final panels to follow this weekend but this is the completed work to date.
