They have cut their hedge reeeaally short so that now my previously private garden is now overlooked by them and I have to avert my eyes from their antics. There was nothing wrong with the bloody hedge the way it was. It will take ages to grow back. Grrrrrrrr.

What sort of antics grin?

GloryHunter Sun 21-Apr-13 17:59:49

Marching round the garden with baby in sling and chanting in Japanese blush

Freddiemisagreatshag Sun 21-Apr-13 18:01:07

Damn. That's tame grin

You have to hard cut hedges regularly to stop them getting bare at the roots. It will froth back very very quickly at this time of year.


PS - sorry Freddie. Maybe wait and see what they get up to when the weather improves?

"What sort of antics ?"

"Marching round the garden with baby in sling and chanting in Japanese"

Fantastic, we need to know more! Drip feed if necessary.

Are they actual Japanese people?

I'm only asking because maybe they prefer a Bonsai hedge.

....I'll get me coat.

It is clearly so you can see them loud parenting of course. Tomorrow it will be chess. Then yoga. Then applied maths.

Unless they really are japanese in which case they are jyst doing a spring prune and having a sing song grin

Drip feed if necessary.. grin

Annoy them a lot, by peering over, and throwing things into their garden.

They wont chop it so short again

You need to grow something within your boundary. Being overlooked would really irritate me tbh. The chanting would get on my nerves too though, and even a high hedge isn't going to drown that out

BeebiesQueen Sun 21-Apr-13 18:32:31

blush I'm actually just place marking because I want to hear more.

As you were

CurlyhairedAssassin Sun 21-Apr-13 18:33:49

Guffawing at "bonsai hedge"!

GloryHunter Sun 21-Apr-13 19:42:14

grin Bonsai hedge, very good. Yes they are really Japanese

wakeupandsmellthecoffee Sun 21-Apr-13 19:48:18

Well there's no need to be Sarki(Japanese drink credit lol )

MelanieCheeks Sun 21-Apr-13 20:00:25

Ooooh, I hate it when my neighbours do that baby-sling-Japanese-chanting thing!

IsBella Sun 21-Apr-13 20:06:15

I feel pissed off that your neighbours are so interesting.

Mine never chant in Japanese, the bastards.

FarelyKnuts Sun 21-Apr-13 20:08:15

In fairness then they are possibly not chanting, more repeating over and over to babe in sling "go the fuck to sleep, please just go to sleep"?? grin

olgaga Sun 21-Apr-13 20:16:11

Are they chanting this:


If so YANBU!

olgaga Sun 21-Apr-13 20:17:51

Haha posted too soon!

I went on google translate and got

"Neighbour, are you annoyed yet? If so we will go in."

Unfortunately it didn't copy and paste properly. Oh well...grin

DontSHOUTTTTTT Sun 21-Apr-13 20:24:40

YANBU but only if it was your hedge

YABU if it was their hedge.

Doubtfuldaphne Sun 21-Apr-13 20:49:50

I have the exact same problem! New neighbours just moved in, cut hedge so now we have no privacy at all. I am avoiding using the garden now because I don't want to make small talk every time I go outside.
We also now have to see their bouncy castle, play house, go karts, trampoline.. While my dc's play with their football

apostropheuse Sun 21-Apr-13 20:54:35

Erect a fence in your own garden then. You're responsible for your own privacy. smile

*Branleuse, I reached out to hit the "like" button then! blush grin

I think you need to learn Japanese pronto so you know what they're chanting about. They could be chanting "our neighbours are fuckers" for all you know.
