I had something similar.
We were cleaning up old pieces of rip rap a previous owner of a property thought was nice and had around her yard.
The estate wanted us to clean it up to help the place sell. This house and the neighbors house was only 25 feet apart and we were parked in the drive in between.
We weren't being obnoxious about putting the material in the back of my dump truck by hand, but it was probably echoing between the two houses.
Neighbor comes out and politely asks us to try and keep it down while her daughter was taking a nap.
I politely said we would try. But of course it was still noisy.
