The general consensus seems to be that a hedge between neighbouring gardens should be no higher than approx. 2 metres.
What I would like to know is which side of the hedge the height measurement should be taken.
My neighbour has a well controlled leylandi hedge between our gardens, the only problem is that his garden has been landscaped to make it level while ours still has its natural slope. This means that the hedge height from our point of view, along 2/3 of its length, is over 8 feet high and higher.
Does anyone have any views.
