    Who owns the hedge between two driveways?


    Can someone tell me if the hedge is my responsibility or not? If I’m standing on my property looking at the road then my house is on the left side and theirs is on the right. They never seem to cut the hedge so I always end up doing it and I’m getting fed up so I want to just get rid altogether.

    "Probably best to speak with your neighbor and share your concerns. They may not be cutting it because they think it belongs to you and that you don't want them to touch it.

    Hope this helps."
