"Thankfully, my neighborhood is free of hillbillies"
Who you callin a hillbilly ?What is wrong with being a hillbilly ? MY anti P.C. alert is going off!!
That's why I chose the place I did----they can't see me and I can't see them---except one house a little during the winter months. The last thing I want is to sit on my patio or deck and see the backs of a dozen other houses. No thank you.
Thankfully, my neighborhood is free of hillbillies. Everyone takes care of their property.
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.
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.
The majority of Lawrence lawns are mostly weeds anyway. East and old West Lawrence and KU being the biggest culprits. Soon there will be no need to mow them so much when we can let it ALL burn up and go dormant in the summer heat.
Which bring us to...Do you mention to to your neighbors when they have a maintained case of weeds, brown and dry, and or dirt lawn during the summer? If so get over it.
My neighbors mow their lawn too much!
No, I mow it for them.
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.
My Ex used to be the neighborhood douche about other folks' lawns. If you've read anything I've typed, you would know that this is not shocking.
If my neighbor told me I needed to mow my lawn, I would tell him his wife needs a real man. Instead of a noseypoker.
My wife gives great mow jobs.
CW, how does Mr. Hedges feel about that trim? I mean, trim. Mrs. Hedges.
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.
I trim the hedges often
I mow my neighbors lawn when it's really hot in the summer. They are both so fat that they literally can't push their mower. I feel sorry for them.
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.
If my neighbor complained about my lawn, I would tell them if it bothers them, they're welcome to mow it for me.
My boyfriend keeps my lawn trimmed.
No, but they tell me
I wax. Thanks for asking though.
I agree with Pywacket......
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.
Why, no, I am not a meddling busybody. Thanks for asking.
(Also--agree with others who suggest offering help if it really is a problem.)
I ask them if they need some help mowing it. Never been turned down.
If I had a problem, I would just mow it myself, It is just the neighborly thing to do.
Just like disciplining others children, if they won't, I will.
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.
The bottom line..... If citizens do not complain the city does nothing. It's that simple.
Nah. But I don't mow my own 'til I can't see the mail box . . .
