There is an old expression that good fences make good neighbours ..I'm at a bit of a loss as to why the neighbours would need to use someone elses garden as there are always allocated garden areas and parking places in such situations. Maybe they just prefer and found Karl's area more convenient.

Tricky one, I'd say they can but they do the gardening or make a payment and its an agreement in writing renewed annually and he can withdraw if it doesn't work out.
I have a parking space and the cheeky neighbours use it, no one has asked. One day my friend parked there and she got a rude note saying "this is private parking and I am a GP", I wrote one back saying "its my space and so what if you're a GP which I doubt". I don't mind as I currently don't have a car, but legally if I sell will they be able to say anything - thinking of putting up a sign and writing to them saying something - can I legally charge them?

hmm... in this situation I think I would probably say no initially, but maybe when I'm on holiday...
on the other hand.... where I live now neighbours have been here over 20 years (I rent they own), have their own garden & an allotment etc so not after my space but they continue to keep an eye on my place as they have always done, I feel more secure knowing they would come to my aid if something happened, he had said to me that he'd come up with an idea to stop shed door banging & I was happy to agree that he could just jump over fence & sort it for me when he'd got hold of the appropriate bit he needed. He's also done some DIY bits for me, & I leave spare keys with them when I go on hols for emergencies - if I'd been rude when first moved in & they said they'd kept an eye on property while empty & would continue to keep eye for me then would prob have been v detrimental!
