OK SO YOU HAVE A NOSY NEIGHBOR THAT HAS REPORTED YOUR LAWN OPERATION TO ZONING, THE COUNTY, TOWN HALL, ETC... Below is a VERY EFFECTIVE WAY OF DEALING WITH IT that has worked for me: Tell your neighbor you are protected by Section 8, Federal Law. When the neighbor gives you that dumb HUH? look..... Say yes, Section 8. You piss me off enough and I move out, and rent my house to Section 8 tenants. Explain to them that the Federal Gov't guarantees the rent will be paid to you. Your neighbor's hard earned tax dollars will then be directly applied to subsidizing section 8 tenants in his neighborhood. BTW....the complaining neighbor is generally not your next door neighbor or neighbor directly across from you. You will usually discover it is someone 3 or more homes away, across the street, or on a street behind you. IF YOU LIVE IN A RURAL AREA: Don't forget your Federal Right to Farm. If you have a fussy neighbor explain to them that if they continue to rant, you will become a hog farmer. Tell thy neighbor: Pigs or mowers, you pick. Now, of course you want to be a decent person and not disturb people unfairly in their homes. But, no matter how nice you try to be, somebody will always complain. Beyond normal courtesy, don't give an inch. If you give at all, the problem will get worse. Don't worry about making an enemy, the party involved is obviously not friend-worthy anyway.
