Homeowner builds wall to get revenge on neighbour who furiously tries to kick it down

One homeowner built a wall to get revenge on their neighbour who furiously tried to kick it down.
The not-so-neighbourly dispute hit a climax as one neighbour sprayed the other with a hose with both screaming obscenities toward one another while filming the whole ordeal.
The territory squabble over the newly-erected brick wall on the adjoining property ended in one set of neighbours sabotaging the tradesman's efforts, before engaging in a tug of war, which consequently sprayed water everywhere.
The incident. took place in the western suburbs of Sydney, Australia, when a neighbourhood battle broke out in Edensor Park, over the retaining wall.
After quite some time of feuding, the suburban spat reached a boiling point when Valentina brought in a few bricklayers to separate her property from her neighbours' even more.
Valentina took to TikTok to share a video of the moment she began arguing with her next-door neighbours.
In the footage, one of the neighbours can be seen sweeping water onto the project area to stop the mortar from setting, before eventually turning on the workers with the hose - splashing both the bricklayers and the wall-in-progress.
In the background of the video, Valentina (the neighbour having the wall built) can be heard saying: "Your parents must be proud.
"You are ruining the wall."
The workers then retaliated as they snatched the hose off the neighbour and sprayed him right back.
At this point, things really took a turn for the worst when the neighbour took it upon himself to start kicking bricks right off the wall.
Valentina then said: "You are sick, you are sick... Go to the hospital.
"Are you going to pay for that?"
The TikTok video uploaded to Valentina's account - which has since been made private - went viral after clocking up millions upon millions of views.
She later claimed the wall was built legally and for a reason, stating: "We have all the boundary surveys the wall is definitely on our property.
"The wall is fine it’s not on their property, it doesn’t affect them in any way."
After gaining so much traction online, it ended up being featured on Australia's A Current Affair show, which interviewed the two neighbours seeing them open up about their side of the story.
Neighbour Connie, who also filmed the encounter, revealed the dispute was in fact over rainwater flows.
She told the outlet: "I have to protect my property."
At the time the show was aired last year, New South Wales was experiencing an intense period of storms which led to Valentina's home - which is built lower to Connie's - experiencing flooding from the higher ground, hence why the wall was built in the first place.
Valentina said: "She is sending her water onto ours and flooding our property.
"She thinks our house is supposed to collect all of her rainwater."
Connie responded: "It is surface water from the sky, not storm water and I can’t control it.
"The council policy says the water flow must not be obstructed by kerbing, fencing or retaining walls.
"I won‘t give up, the police can arrest me. But I have to protect my land."
