Just moved into 3 bed house, which was formerly two self-contained flats with a central fence dividing the back garden into two 'strips'. I want to remove the fence so that the garden can be just one green space. I've managed to remove the wooden fence panels which just slide up and out. However, the base of each wooden panel 'sits' on a concrete spacer, about a foot high, and stretching the width between the posts. They are free to move in the slots but way too heavy to lift out. I know that the concrete posts themselves are steel re-inforced as one of them has a small chip in the surface and I can see the metal rod inside. So they will have to stay - I propose covering them with climbing plants.. But I would dearly like to lose the foot-high concrete bases which effectively bisect the garden and are a nuisance as well as a tripping hazard. It occurs to me that if these slabs are not re-inforced concrete, as they are there primarily to avoid panels' wood rotting in contact with the earth, a sharp blow with a steel hammer or chisel might crack them in half and then make them easy to remove. Does anyone know if this will happen or will these panels be steel re-inforced and thus need heavy work with an angle grinder-type cutter, which I do not possess?
