Drive a few lengths of steel Into the ground and then bolt, or even better weld, a few lengths of motorway crash barrier across the back of his property, a few inches inside your boundary.

f**k ‘em.

I see it nearly every day wherever I’m spreading. I would estimate half of people who have a garden bordering a field have a gate into that field.

One customer could easily grab another 10 furrows of ground from his neighbours. I was spreading there when someone came out complaining about the dust. I usually knock on doors before I start but I didn’t for this row of vermin huts. It would be a fallout before I even started. Told the benefit scrounger a bit of lime dust was nothing to worry about compared to the shite he was smoking.

But the big posh houses are the worst. Pristine gardens and all their waste in the field. If they were my neighbours the whole lot would be scooped up and dumped back over.
I had the environment chap out a couple of times when I was spreading, saying people were complaining that they were struggling to breath, there I am covered in lime grey as a badger, told him if that were true with a bit of dust for a few seconds then I would be dead long ago, he was ok after that.
did have an odd occasion when a car diapered in to the dust when I was spreading alongside a road never to be seen again but that's another story.
 
Dad had some bod out once from environmental health.

Chap introduced himself and said not to worry, he knew what was going on before he even left the office after the complaint, but explained he had to visit to tick the box.

I can’t see them being anything like that sensible these days.

We spread some gypsum the other day, not supplied by me. It was lovely stuff but, Christ, it was dry! I reckon they would have seen us from outer space.

You will be very lucky to get the police to take any notice of a minor crime like that nowadays. Unless someone is out on a killing spree they will stay at home eating Donuts .
All this namby pamby talk of killing and burying folks. :X3: Man up, get round there, and plant some courgette seeds in his greenhouse.💪
And who waters em,? Trundle up his garden and attatch your hose, people!! Society is fooked!

He can spray his bank on his property though surely?
Just to be clear, he's spraying his property AND coming into your field and spraying it? Which of course is a big no no. Or is he spraying the base of the fence to stop grass growing on to his side?
Not taking sides, I just like to know what's actually happening. It seems strange that he would just wander into your field and spray random strips.
Spraying my field from his garden. The bank is over a metre high so absolutely no need to spray the field also. Clearly not very good with the sprayed cause he’s made a right mess of his own garden as well!

I worked as a harvest student at a farm just outside Chelmsford, the farmer was a decent bloke but took no sh!t. We turned up to combine one field bordering houses to discover quite a few had dumped grass clippings, rubble, knackered garden shed etc on his field. As soon as the field was combined he got the teleporter and returned every bit of it to its owners! Police were called and said he was within his rights, was over thirty years ago though.
Oh all his lumps of concrete, handfuls of weeds and wooden bird box with rusty nails for bucked back over last year into middle of his lawn and he still didn’t take the hint 🤷🏼‍♀️🙄

Put letter through the door. Tell them any more instances and solicitors will be involved.
Tried that last year when I found a huge corner bit of glass. She went mad at me for putting a letter through door and leaving the glass on her doorstep 🙄 apparently her cats could have got injured 😂 what about the £30k worth of cattle in the field ?!
