Hahaha 1200 is a lot. We lived a 3 minute drive from our build so I would probably have close to that I think

Our estate requires a certain fence but is the responsibility of the owners afyer construction! The problem is the retaining of their land not the type of fence

I have looked into it more and they are definitely responsible here as they've changed the natural state of the land... It's just a matter of getting them to fix…

I am not at all looking forward to the landscaping side of things either. After doing our last build I said I'd never build again!
