I just have to see if the claims dept are prepared to meet the cost of re-turfing this small garden.
The landscaper that came today to give me a quote told me that the job Openreach left would in all probability always show.
Hang on - you've not agreed to allow the cable to remain, have you?
to get that cable off your property. What if it needs repaired or replaced in future? Whose garden will be getting dug up if/when that happens? Yep, yours.
There is absolutely no reason for that cable to be on your property. Openreach should have dug their trench along the pavement until it reached your neighbour's boundary, and then they should have run it up through his lawn. The reason they did not do that was clearly to save themselves some time and money. Well, frankly, their time and money is not your problem!
