How do you completely stop a nosey neighbor from gawking and causing trouble? I need tips.


I have this neighbor who is 50 years old. She is always, always, looking to see what I am doing in my back yard. It drives me batty. I cant even have a simple conversation with anyone. She stands in her yard pretending to do things and listens. She is nothing but trouble. I installed 4 trellis panels for privacy and she called to complain we put a fence up. To make matters worse, I just discovered her husband is a convicted, non violent felon. This neighbor likes to mooch off others. How have you stopped a nosey, meddlesome neighbor?

    I like your suggestions ! She has a job and husband. She has hobbies! I just do not want her to be a part of our lives! With two kids and work of my own I do not have time to entertain my neighbor!

    Initially when we first moved in I did and was friendly, but then her friendliness started to intrude on my family!

    She has also alienated other neighbors because she is so nosey! I think there is a fine! I also have nothing in common. Thanks.

    When your neighbor starts telling you what you doing when you are doing and wants to know who is coming over for dinner and then asks your kids personal questions in my view they are too nosey! I don't want to get to k ow her anymore than I need to!

    fpherj48 , thanks for stopping by. It is beyond nosy. She was scoping my kids and asking too many questions about our incomes. It is none of their business. I found it bizarre that she went to my kids. She crossed the line.
