    Check your house plans? How was that pipe not found when the retaining wall was built?...surely the footings would have been deeper than that hole? either way do as other people have said change the root ball and leave well

    Garden shed leaning forwards

    New fence professionally installed just not

    .Has this been sorted yet...sounds like a bodgit and leggit type. He should have used at least 9ft posts (assuming 6ft fence +1ft gravel board =2ft in the ground.) At the very least he should have reduced your fence down in size to miss this pipe if it couldnt be moved. 6" in the ground is just...

    Covering Black Fence & Shed

    Pressure washer is a good first choice...always comes off our fence even when your not trying to get it off! otherwise get a mouse or small sander and do one side at a time...soon be done. 8-)
