Would you mow your neighbors lawn if they never did?
We moved into a home a few months ago. The only neighbor is horrible. They do target practice at 7 in the morning, stay up for days at a time turning bright out door lights on and off every 5 minutes, and have not cut the grass even though it is knee high. I'm seriously debating on cutting it just because it looks horrible and reflects badly on the area. Would you cut it? I know they have a mower.
I can only speak from where I am but believe that it's technically against the law to mow a neighbors grass. This can be interpretted as trespassing. We had a similar situation in my neighborhood and were advised to contact the city about the situation. If enough complaints come in, the city must act and if they do, will bill the homeowner for the service and they are not cheap.
I would check with your local authorities since I'm sure it's an annoyance but fines and police visits I would think are moreso.
I understand your frustration but that would be trespassing among other things. You really have no right to do so. You might ask them if you can do it, but don't venture over there without permission.
You can contact the local authorities, once the grass gets beyond a certain height it's considered a health hazard and they will fine them. I've had the same problem in the past, once they get fined they'll start mowing. Good Luck!
i have had to do just that but only once. after i was done, i knocked on the door and told them the next time their grass gets that long, i'll dump the clippings into their car and house when i'm done. they moved the following month so it never became an issue again.it bothers me when people can't respect their neighbors and i'm not the type of person to put up with it.i realize they could have charged me with trespassing but then again i could have broken his legs so it's all good.

What hubber would you make mow your lawn?You don't have to explain why. You don't even have to have a lawn, because it's a metaphorical lawn anyway. But you may explain why if you like.

Strange question maybe, but why do you do it? I mow only because I rent and have to maintain the yard as part of my lease agreement. If I owned I would try to find a way to never mow.What about you? Do you mow because you want your house to look nice? Do you get some other...
