Do you have nosy neighbors? How do you manage them & still keep the peace?


I remember one neighborhood I lived in where the neighbors were very nosy, beyond just friendliness and small gossip. One lady would come onto our property and look in our windows to see if we were home. I finally had to tell her, look I enjoy talking with you but knock on the door! or wait for me to come outside! :) She was elderly so I was pretty forgiving - but still it was annoying. Do you have nosy or intrusive neighbors? What creative ways have you come up with to help manage the problem but still keep the peace?

    ugh, I had a friend who dealt with the tree issue, apparently it's not that uncommon. I agree on fences. If I could afford to fence 3/4 of an acre I'd do it lol :)

    I hope not either! I moved to my current location due to a steady stream of neighbors from hell lol. I'm a private person and where I am now people respect that pretty much. My previous neighborhood though - oh my!.

    Sorry you are dealing with intrusive neighbors. Have you considered white noise headphones for studying? I used to block my loud neighbors out in my apartment days.

    I agree. I tolerated my previous neighbor because she was lonely and elderly, but others need to know boundaries beyond just property lines for many.
