We have a monstrosity of a front garden, all paving slabs, stones and crappy bushes. We've been here for 11 years and hate it. It also covers both ours and next doors' front gardens. By all accounts next door we instrumental in getting it put in in conjunction with the previous owners.
Mrs Feet mentioned to next door that we were going to be taking it all out on our side and turfing it to have a nice 'normal' front lawn. This was back in October.
Well, the opportunity of doing the aforementioned conversion arose with the long bank holiday and me not having to work, so we informed them yesterday that it was 'game on'.
Oh dear, she who resides next door is most definitely not amused!!
Well, she'll just have to lump it 'cos it's our front garden, not hers, even though she seems to think she has absolute authority over how it looks.
Funny thing is, all the other neighbours keep coming up to us and telling us how much better it will look! I expect North Korea style rhetoric will be forthcoming from next door soon! I'm finding it all quite amusing, much to Mr's Feet annoyance
