    The only time I will be worried about my house value is when I sell my house and that isn't happening for a long time. Plus if my neighbors lawn is over grown it makes mine look that much better.

    Don't forget the big truck and trailer sitting in the driveway and the stack of used tires that need to be burnt setting next to the shop. What an eyesore.

    Their shop is their garage. Have a group about a couple blocks away that have that problem and the truck they use is from a property management group.

    Dirt track cars are bad ass, isufbcurt races a late model... that aint no sport compact trailer park legend. I guarantee he isnt out wrenching on that rig in his garage in the slums of Boone. Wish he was my neighbor lol

    I used live in a neighborhood with a large Asian population, never had any issues but they would not walk on the sidewalk. Always walked in the grass in-between the street and sidewalk.

    Just give them a long, awkward hug every time they come on the lawn.

    One of my neighbors tried to enlist me to help him ***** to the another neighbor about his loud car. Loud car is a V-12 Lamborghini Diablo. It is loud and kinda badass. It's not like he is revving it endlessly. I could quibble that he warms it up a little longer then I would but I only drive a modest Boxster with a mere 6 cylinders so what do I know. Anyway, did not enlist.

    I was mostly joking about your car. However I cant stand racing. Im sure you have an actual shop and you mention you live in the country in every other thread so im sure you are good to go as far as annoying neighbors. Round' here we got a bunch of figure 8 racers that are this close to breaking in to nascar (no really, they will tell you that) that wrench on their cavaliers till midnight every night in the alley. Thats the price you pay for living between 3 dirt tracks I guess. Everyone wearing claim my engine Ill kick your ass tshirts to church and what not.

    My question is why do some people obsess over their little patch of grass? What is the point? And even worse why do you think that other neighbors who do not have your same obsession are somehow lessor people? City ordinances that try to dictate the height of lawns are stupid and should be unconstitutional but just goes to show that you are just renting from the City.

    Try selling your house when you live next to neighbor(s) who don't take care of their property. That's what it pretty much boils down to -- devaluation of adjacent properties and neighborhoods.

    Don't worry, he would disagree with you if you said the Earth circled the Sun.

    I am confident that this post comes as zero surprise to anyone who has read more than 2 of your previous posts. This is exactly the same tactic that you take here. I wonder if your neighbors or strangers laugh about your behavior as much as people here do when you try it here.

    There is a difference in a neighbor who is a few days late mowing and it's a little tall. We all get that. It's the neighbor that lets it get 2-3 feet tall which causes all kinds of problems for the neighborhood.
