My neighbour is furious that I've put a fence around MY garden – she cried when she saw it, it was so cringey | The Sun

A MUM has shared how her neighbour overreacted when she put up a fence around her own garden.

The neighbour was so furious that she actually cried when she saw the fence.

The mum explained what happened on Mumsnet, but everyone agrees that the neighbour was being a tad dramatic about the whole thing.

She said: "We are the only house without a fence around our garden, so we planned a garden fence of roughly 1.5 m that would contain our garden, and also form a natural boundary so kids won't run through.

"We have an open front garden (and front walkway) that kids can still use to get from one house to the next, so we aren't cutting anyone off from visiting friends."

This comes after the kids from the neighbouring houses, who often play with the mum's daughters, trampled her flowers – but she admitted that she wasn't mad at kids for being kids.

The mum even let her neighbours know a full year in advance that there would be landscapers putting the fence, but when it finally was installed her neighbour kicked off.

"Our neighbour mum of the six kids came crying (literally) to me that she's devastated about this fence because her kids love our yard so much and they love running through it and as we are higher elevation, our fence makes it impossible to watch her kids from her lower yard.

"She is 'shocked' she wasn't consulted about the design. Her husband called mine to demand we take it down.

"My husband and I refused, we know we are within our rights by law to this fence.

"Everyone else already has a garden fence.

"We aren't responsible for accommodating her parenting needs.

"We desire more privacy, rabbit-free garden and a boundary to keep kids from plants."

Despite seemingly having every right to have the fence around the garden the mum asked: "Should we give in to demands to keep the peace?"

She continued: "She's obviously distressed, but her husband has been a jerk in the past, so we fear this is clouding our position to stay firm."

Other parents agreed that the fence was none of the neighbour's business.
