Overhanging brambles

Reported via mobile in the Obstruction category anonymously at 07:34, Fri 12 August 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3748583.

I have just cut down a large number of brambles hanging in my garden. They grow so quickly and after 3 weeks I have just filled my whole bin. In places they are pushing through my fence (breaking it) and through my shed. At the end of last year they were cut to the height of my fence, this also resulted in a complaint as all of the debris ended up in my garden. They need to be cut much shorter or removed completely. I know that this was reported a couple of years ago but nothing has ever happened. I purposely have a low maintenance garden. But this means it is but the case as every few weeks I need to cut back brambles that are hanging over my fence. I have ended up with cuts, holes in my clothes and they get caught in my dogs fur.
