Nah. But I don't mow my own 'til I can't see the mail box . . .
The bottom line..... If citizens do not complain the city does nothing. It's that simple.
Does it really matter if your neighbor's lawn is a little tall? For that matter, what is too tall? Who gets to decide? I understand having a problem if it's extremely tall, say several feet or more. But less than that, it seems to be a personal opinion of what is an appropriate height.
I have lived in Lawrence for 20 years and this has never been a problem. Maybe I am lucky but my neighbors have always taken very good care of their lawns. Simply not an issue.
same here, but if you drive through certain neighborhoods with lots of renters it's a totally different story. Some of those places have more weeds than a field in the open prairie. I'm not even sure how that's possible. It's like they oversees with weeds.
You discipline other people's children because they won't? That can't be true.
My neighbor is away for 10/15 days at a time. I never admit to him I mow his yard at times but he always shows up with a pitcher of Marguaritas whe he sees it has been mowed.
I'd keep that lawn looking better than mine for that. What a neighbor
My boyfriend keeps my lawn trimmed.
If my neighbor complained about my lawn, I would tell them if it bothers them, they're welcome to mow it for me.
I have mowed a neighbors yard when it seemed they needed a hand. I was tickled when I was laid up that my neighbor's kid took it upon himself to mow mine. He wouldn't take a dime. He is a nice kid.
My neighbor has his lawn mowed maybe once every six weeks. Looks nice for a few days, then not. He never waters, never fertilizes, I've seen him in his yard maybe twice in the five years I've lived here. I don't care - it makes my lawn look that much better. Actually I do mow and water a small part of his property that butts up to mine, just to help keep some of his shrubs alive.
My wife gives great mow jobs.
Once upon a time yes, but I ended up getting them evicted. Haven't had a problem since. Lawn is nicely mowed and taken care of and driveway is fully cleared when (and if) it snows.
No, I mow it for them.
My neighbors mow their lawn too much!
Bugs, Mice, and eventually Snakes:
I'm definitely not a lawn 'nazi'. During construction and within a year or so of moving in I had weeds (2 acre lawn). The things I did notice before I had a good lawn was that my house was constantly under attack by bugs, mice, and snakes when my grass/weeds were high. Ticks love that long grass. I got on it simply because I wanted a cleaner/safer (from bugs and snakes) place for my kids and their friends to play. Now all I have are moles and their tunnels and a ton of deer munching the new grass. I like deer in the front yard though. Pretty nice sight to wake up to.
Well, on Friday I learned that it will take a least a week to fix my broken mower so I hope that my neighbors give me the benefit of the doubt.
Thankfully, my neighborhood is free of hillbillies. Everyone takes care of their property.
