Fence wars 2.0

Because more often than not, the paint leaks through to the other side and dribbles down. Then there's the top of the fence that's painted too..

...if spray paint is used as opposed to paint from a can, then it won't drip down. The top can be left unpainted.

....just to play devil's advocate here - what would happen if you did actually paint the side of the fence facing your garden, can you be taken to court or anything? Would the council/police be involved?

If the answers to these questions are all 'nothing' or 'no' then I would go ahead and paint the face if I was in this situation.....!!

In a house I lived in a few years ago I put up a brand new fence on all sides after getting permission off all neighbours.
I even asked them to stain their sides as I knew it would protect ‘my’ fence.
One neighbour decided to spray his side a nice dark brown, and I found overspray all over my conservatory :mad:

I had a neighbour once who put up a couple of fence panels to give them privacy on their patio. I was going to do the exact same, but they did it before me. They were new build properties and the developer had just installed a chain link fence between us.

After my neighbour had finished, I removed the chain link fence my side, and attached the cut end to the end of her new fence. Suppose I should of asked, ‘cos she went ape s**t. Accused me of stealing some of her garden, the bit where the chain link was. Got quite heated, so I put the chain link back.

So I then put up some of my own fence panels, next to hers, with the chain link sandwiched in between.

Stupid cow, if I had done it first, and she did the same with the chain link, wouldn’t of mattered a jot with me.

No. From what I've read, it's quite important to paint the top :rotfl: :laugh:

I need a diagram to understand this.

The chain link was either on his side of the original posts or down the middle. So she's had 2-4" of her garden "stolen".

Sorry to hear yet another miserable neighbour story. What’s wrong with some people, children are meant to play have fun and make some noise.

Just paint your side if you don’t like it. And if you can see the top from your windows don’t forgot that part :)
Agreed. We're retired, kids have flown the nest and it's too quiet. We have a primary school at the end of the road; it's great to hear them shouting and squealing at play times.

We had our next door but one neighbour approach us soon after moving in to this house and they told us how lovely it was to hear children playing in the garden. Cruella Deville next door disagrees with that statement :D

I took two posts out on my side this morning. I put them in to give her fence some extra support because it was really wobbly. I decided it made sense to remove them in light of the whole fence being replaced next week.

came back to find another two panels down. Goes to show how much those posts I put in were doing.
