That must have been very disheartening for you. But does that mean that you are staying there after all?

Is it a private Landlord? Maybe you could replace the wild corner with things that the bugs, pollinators and hogs still like even if the area doesn’t look quite so wild? The hogs aren’t too fussy if things are a bit neat. What is actually there is more important than how untidy/tidy it is. Also maybe the wall could have a wooden ramp for the hogs? Seems worth a try as there are hogs already around. That is, if you are staying there after all. But, hogs are surprisingly good climbers, so depending on how the wall is made, may be able to climb it. But it is very frustrating how many gardens are concreted these days.

Fingers crossed that you can reach some sort of compromise.

It seems likely that the hogs are getting some food, at least, from elsewhere. Bearing in mind it could be a mile or more away, you wouldn’t necessarily know about it.

Good luck. I hope the situation improves.
