Replacing fences

Replacing the fences in your garden can be a bit of a nightmare if you have tricky neighbours. If you’re situated between two other houses and have fences either side of your garden as a boundary, you’ll know that you’re only responsible for one fence. This could be the one on the left or the one on the right; it all depends on your neighbourhood. This is why it can be tricky replacing your fences, because your neighbor may have no interest in replacing theirs, no matter how damaged or untidy it looks. Try the nice approach first by hinting to them you’re planning on updating the fences and see how they respond, if they show no interest you can always offer to do the work on both sides as long as they pay. Unfortunately, if they’re still not interested there isn’t much you can do, and you will just have to put up with it until they decide otherwise.
