Hi I have a query regarding the legal obligations of a gardner before they start work on a boundary hedge. As I understand it boundary hedges should not be significantly altered without agreement of both neighbours. So if i come home to find my 12 foot high hedge reduced to 8 foot do I have grounds to seek damages from the gardener that carried this out by the request of my neighbour. Even if they are told by my neighbour that we had agreed to this surely they should be obliged to confirm it with us directly before they started working on it. Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.
