Corner Lot

louise80's picture

Hi there,  my house is a corner lot and there is a sidewalk that runs to that side.  I have a fence that covers right up to the front porch.  However, i have neighbours that feel its ok to walk across my grass to make a short cut...   I was wondering if anyone had any ideas to perhaps make my  front garden  more enclosed (private) so that I dont have this ongoing issue.  Im not a gardener though I would be interested in anyones suggestions. Im making this a priority as soon as spring arrives.

 Hi Louise, When you have a garden it is your duty to make it enclosed. I think that you should spend your time for gardening and try to put some plastic rocks in your garden. If there is no space to walk in the garden then no one will walk across and your problem will be solved. You have to spent a lot of time in the garden and also plant some flowers. It is always going to be a good advantage for you to plant flowers and make your garden more beautiful, above all your family will also feel a nature friendly environment which will be a plus point.

Unfortunately we don't have tips for growing hedges online, but here's a link with more info:

All the best!
