What a cheek Palm Lad, So, you had to fork out? hope they dont do the same thing! Hub wouldn't let me sort it out with her, Im to quick tempered, if she had of flicked her hair once, I would of kicked off :mrgreen: Hub sorted it, told her he wasn't putting posts in for her and not to "touch" ours, She did the same with neighbour on the other side of her, as it was her fence, she had to pay out twice..

The trellis you see is what we added on top of the original small fence a few years ago Mr List, They then nailed or screwed there fence onto that! Last year we we put posts in front of the original to fix the willow screening onto, then early this year, the winds took the old fencing down, hub had to put new posts in the other side, behind the compost bins and greenhouse and add new fencing. Then she had to insert her own posts and reattatch her fence to those..

Yeah my ex neighbour stuck a Fence up many years ago but all he did was bolt the post to the rickity 3ft dividing wall which was already about to fall over, they did this while we were all out ! when i asked if the post were also set in the ground they said No they didn't think it needed it uckin Idiot

So to save the lot falling over on to my Garden I put up my own fence with post set in the ground

Absolutely beautiful Dee, I love the way all the colours and textures in your planting scheme make the whole effect look very lush. icon_thumleft

Don't know how I missed thread but glad I caught up.

The beds look great Deedee, your hubbins has done a cracking job there, but the plant choices and arrangement are the piece de resistance.

Fantastic!

Just catching up.

That is a great piece of come-back gardening. It all looks very lovely and the colours are fantastic. I love the range of summer bedding that you've chosen. I hope the winter is not too harsh again for you. (and the rest of us of course!)
