Since it is their boundary you cannot stop them changing to a fence. However, if they do damage your patio slabs in the process you can claim in respect of the damage done.

The unsightly gap will need to be dealt with by lateral thinking such as a flower bed or pots.

I hope this helps, if there are any further points please rteply
