    OP I'm glad to see you didnt raise it. This is a total non issue.

    Id say the fact you have a different coloured fence/trellis backing onto your garden is more visually displeasing.

    The fact you needed to ask is more of an issue tbh.

    Yeahhh echoing other comments, it looks like it runs alongside a garage which they may tie it to for some support.

    Nowt wrong with that. Eyesore or not I would be aggrieved if that was my parasol and you asked me to do something about it. In the grand scheme things this is nothing when typically the common people think it’s a good idea to have a bar in their garden. Then you’ve got problems.

    with the way OP was talking I thought some monstrous post sticking 30ft in to the sky was blocking his light

    Now they've constructed their own fence you can at least have the good side facing yours when the time comes to rebuild it.

    You might not even notice in a day or 2. It's funny what sticks out because it's new or indeed what you can get used to.

    I lived under Heathrow flight path for a bit, you hardly notice after a while.

    Just curious, are you a social kinda guy or a reclusive type?

    I have imagined what you might be like and that's probably unfair lol.

    Get a minimum 10 ft laurel tree in a nice decorative pot and bang it next to fence. It will hide parasol and add some much needed greenery to the garden.

    And get some decent garden furniture so you can sit out and enjoy the weather!

    come on bro, let's be reasonable what kind of monster sits outside in their garden but gives the garden a roof?

    you might as well stay inside and open your windows wider
