Pipes in Back Garden - What for?

Post by Dylan9709 »

Hi,

There’s 2 pipes in my back garden, one much longer than the other. I’m just wondering if anyone has any ideas what they could be? I’m wanting to shorten the longer one to the same length as the other and then just hide them around a bunch of soil or something.

1. As they both have open ends, they are clearly not in use.
2. They are very thick walled, and look like hydraulic tubing.
3. At a complete guess, I'd say they were probably used to reinforce something, possibly the fence.
4. Feel free to cut away to your heart's content.

I second that, I think they were part of an earlier fence system and when the new fence went in I suspect they did not have an angle grinder to cut them off. I take it there is not a cesspit or anything that this might be part of?

No, no cesspit. Almost immediately after Andy had replied I decided screw it and just give it shorten. Managed to get it cut down, with 0 issues. Thank you for the help!
