I want to put up a 4-foot wooden fence at the back of my garden, but I'm concerned that the hedge on the other side will grow over/under/through my new fence.
On the other side of my garden is an open field with a hedge that is not maintained that grows into my garden. I have recentrly had it cut back, so I can put up a small 4-foot fence. But I'm worried that the fence will not hold back the hedge.
Also, you can see from the photos that there is a metal fence already there that seems quite sturdy.
I'm not sure what type of hedge it. I think the green bits higher up are bindweed. Hopefully, the photos will help there.
I don't mind cutting it back every few weeks. But if I put up a fence, I might not be able to get to the bottom of it and it might push through my fence.
What should I do?
EDIT: Also, what should I use to keep that hedge cut back? A hedge trimmer or chainsaw?
