    Our garden slopes left to right . I have a 6ft fence ( panels ) on the right which im responsible for which im about to renew , so it 6ft my side but nearer 8ft his side due to the step/slope .
    They requested lowering the fence as im renewing it ,but I prefer to keep it as it is . Ive always just replaced the 6ft panels like for like and hes never mentioned it before being as an issue.
    How do i stand ..

    thanks

    From your side.
    2m from the original ground level.
    Leave it as it is.

    Show them the fence. It's like it now, it will be replaced exactly the same.

    What Woody said.
    Explain to them that lowering it will also lower it on your side.
    Do you have kids/dogs? if so explain that you don't want them escaping or looking over it.
    Or just do it.

    Perhaps say that as he has asked to lower it, that you won't out the trellis on top that you were planning :)
