    Dear neighbor, can you please stop cutting my grass and encroaching on my property!!!

    As title indicates. Am I the only one who is annoyed by a neighbor who is trying to do a good deed after my repeated requests to stop trespassing and/or do anything on my property.

    Yesterday, I had him cited for trespassing :0).

    You know what they say: No good deed goes unpunished.

    This is the messages to those who are trying to be extra neighborly and do things on someone’s property without permission.

    STOP IT!!!!!

    (No Cutting grass or clearing brush, and so on. ) yes I know it does not look pretty to you.

    Stay off my yard please. !!!!

    I could probably use him if he likes to mow and clear brush. Did he charge much?

    Hmmmm. This is kinda timely. I just had a neighbor who moved out and closed on his home yesterday. The grass needs to be cut. I was going to cut the lawn for the new neighbors as I'm sure they'll be concentrating on moving themselves in this weekend. They'll be moving into a home that needs the grass cut.

    Now you have me thinking I really shouldn't.....

    Not sure but it may cost you if he breaks his neck on your property and you will be responsible for his med bills. :0)

    When our next door neighbor moved it was probably 6-months until the property sold and someone else moved in. It was about 1/2 acre of somewhat flat land so I just went ahead and mowed it whenever needed without giving it much thought. It only took 15-20 mins. Not only did it look better for prospective buyers but it eliminated tall grass and weeds next to my yard which helped eliminate any critters setting up shop.

    I continued to cut the grass for the new neighbors for about 3-4 months until they got settled and got their own lawn mower.

    Quite frankly, unless your neighbor is damaging your lawn in someway or his mowing is somehow adversely impacting something else you are doing I say why kick a gift horse in the face? I mean... gas is up to $3.00 per gallon around here so the less you have to mow the better.

    Interesting topic as I'm having issues with my long time "nice" neighbor turned "annoying" (but that's another story). Is you neighbor encroaching by only a couple of feet into your property, i.e. mowing just over the property line, or is he actually way into your property doing something?

    If he's way onto your property, I figured a polite "please don't" would be sufficient ... or does he think the location of the property line is different than where you think it is?

    Sometimes it's not easy dealing with neighbors.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I would do it...
    I don’t worry too much about situations like the OP has...or any other situation come to think of it
    I guess you could say that I like living in my “fool’s paradise “—until I get bit.

    I'm just trying to be neighborly and welcome the new folks in. If they ask me not to, I'd understand and it'd be ok.

    Well obviously you and your neighbor have had many rounds of problems if you had them cited... In your particular case follow the old addage "good fences make good neighbors" put up a fence and then you won't have to deal/see them and vice versa. For most circumstances a simple neighborly discussion of intent and appropriate activity should take care of any problems.
