What would you do in this situation?

My neighbor has a "mowing crew" mow for them. Its actually two kids with toys, one is the daughters boyfriend. Anyway, last year they started using a riding tractor to mow, (city lot approx 100x100, large house, driveway, etc.) and started blowing grass in my yard. I went to talk to the kid and he started off about me not having to be a dick about it, just ask nice. So I talked to the owner, they said no problem, sorry, wont happen again. Well, here we are again, now they have a ???? brand walk behind, approx 42", and made a huge mess with it. Problem is, no one ever seems to be home, and these kids always seem to mow while Im not here. Not that I should EVER have to say a word. I take a lot of pride in my yard and the way it looks, and this crap pisses me off. Especially since I already talked to them once about it. I know they dont have insurance or anything, and probably just started last year, but seems to me I should be able to do something about it.......Any ideas?

Contact the next door neighbor, and get the number of the service. Call and let them know.

They are two guys and a truck. Not easy to get ahold of. Niether are the neighbors. Im tempted to fire up the 318 and blow all my grass in their yard, but my wife says two wrong dont make a right. Gues Ill have to camp out to talk to someone about it.......

Camp out with a video camera so you have proof,and
mabey a big mean dog.I don't see how blowing grass back over is a wrong,to me it would be a right.
But if you want to know what I would do?
I'd snatch that punk smartmouth kid right off that mower and teach him some manners real quick!!

Spray Roundup on their side of the yard that joins yours. Problem solved.

Just Kidding. But it did cross my mind.

Bag your lawn and dump your grass on their doorstep. Maybe the homeowner will complain to the lawn boys.

Just be careful. A friend of mine went out to talk to a new neighbor about them parking on his property and now he has a plate in his skull. The ******* hit him with a Jack Daniels bottle as he turned to walk away. It's not like in the movies folks. The skull is going to bust before that glass bottle is.

"A simple remedy"

Hi, bring you neighbor over & show him the mess, now explain to him that all his service has to do is cut your boarder on reverse [ goin the opposite way] so the grass blows back in their yard?....And as they do this when they cut it again it will soon disapear........
