    digging a hole for a red robin tree and found this iron (I think) pipe in the way. It’s at the end of our rear garden. Any ideas what it might be and level of risk if I decide to grind it out? upload_2018-6-19_21-57-21.jpeg

    Roots will grow round it - if the hole's too shallow - cut a notch in the rootball. Get some michorhizal powder to help it start growing;)

    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 alone..lol
