I want to build my garden shed, big metal thing, but the shed company say I need to have room between the shed and foliage. Now, my neighbours conifer sticks out onto my patch – the roots and trunk on his side, the branches on mine. I’m pretty sure I can nip back to the trunk from my side to the boundary and thus allow my new shed to breathe! I just want to be armed before I ask (hes a miserable so and so) and will say no for sure.
Also the roots are on my side, and as I say i need to put a concrete shed base down, so will probably kill at least part of the tree when I cut the roots – anyone else had the same issue?
