bogan neighbour update.....

Last night the bogan neighbours out the back have chopped down the tree that was up against the fence. It was a beautiful and tall pine.

It was obvious it was in the way of extending their outside entertaining.

I investigated the proceedings this morning as I was moving garden rubbish around....

There is a metal pole - or trident - that is right up against the corner of the fence. I believe that they are setting up some sort of entertainment area......

I have considered asking them if they will insulate the area somewhat. Two things go against this. One - I am a chicken. Two - they won't care and will make more noise if they know that it will annoy me! there is also the possibility that they might listen to what I have to say and follow through with my suggestions.....ha!

Looking at putting in foliage on my side of the fence. One friend has suggested two plant types that she thinks grow 1/2 foot in a year.......I was told that about other plants and they are still too short.

Another friend has suggested the 'ball-on-a-stick' type plants in pots. I am thinking this will be a great idea. It means that I will be able to take them with me when I go. the idea is that the trees are already at the right height, and if I pick rather dense shrubbery then I have a better chance of cutting the noise down. It also occurred to me that I might need some bushes against the fence line as well. I think a visit to the nursery is in order.

Oh the joys of the bogan neighbour!

A trident? Perhaps they are about to set up a temple to Neptune. I think the best thing to do is take evasive action, as you are planning. Those ball on a stick plants can be expensive though.
