Good Morning, Good afternoon, Good Evening, Wherever You maybe at this time. I want to talk about Neighbors … You know the People Who You live next door to .. People in our Neighborhood communities .Neighbor’s today have changed and have grown apart ….Our neighborhoods, have become just another place to be …Instead of the way things use to be ..Where neighbors of old ,Would come together to help their neighbor for whatever the reason… Let’s talk about Our yards to our homes..Some people have wonderful and beautiful yards.. and Do great with the upkeep of their yards.. Especially the front of their home ..Everyone wants to have a home to be proud of and that Looks beautiful ….Today there is so many options with lawn care that is out there ,To make lawns presentable and something nice to look at … However then you have the neighbor, Who moves into the neighborhood and puts in a lot of trees, bushes and flowers into their yards and a little wooden picket white fence up in their front yard. Then over the years the yard becomes too much for one to do (However, They put bushes, flowers and trees, That are not compatible with each other) and make them overcome the yard .They let the yard go for whatever the reason may be …..Which , I may say in the beginning they may looked really nice together especially with the little white picket fence But Then ,Forever the reason They decided to take the fence out … Which left their bushes , plants , flowers and trees to overgrow each other and now has extended themselves into your yard – (Which makes it look like a jungle, and a swamp…) Neighbors, Who Do not do the upkeep Because there is so much to do with the cutting ,trimming and the upkeep of care to keep them looking nice and to keep them at bay …Now the Neighbor’s yard has become a swamp/jungle like ….Then their Yard without upkeep is not so nice to look at….These neighbors only thinking of and for themselves…They don’t care of, for or about their neighbor…or The neighborhood….Or the fact that the Neighbor(You) is having to do the work Of cutting and trimming their bushes, trees, shrubs and flowers From taking over their own yard… Neighbor’s Trees.bushes, flowers and what have you…when the person’s yard who has these flowers, bushes, and trees should do the upkeep of their Own property but don’t and won’t ….. Let’s talk about How people live in general .People don’t honor thy neighbor , Some don’t respect their neighbor for whatever the reason … Some don’t like their Neighbor….Doesn’t the bible say treat your Neighbor as you would treat yourself.? They take care of themselves,But have left the yard to languish … They let their yards over flow into the next Yard ..leaving you to cut , rake, mow and to fix whatever they have not done themselves ,So that your yard does not become like the neighbor’s yard . Neighbors are not like the days of old ,Where people would come together and do for the neighbor especially ,If the Neighbor could not do for themselves. However in today’s world people want to be left alone and to do whatever it is they want to do or not do ….Because people think they work all week and they don’t want to do anything on the weekend..and let’s face it who wants to work all week and then have to do yard work on a Saturday ? But, We do ……Because it is our property and it needs to be taken care of … The work of up keeping our homes is our responsibility ….. People seem to forget that , and think if You don’t like it do something about it ….But They forget it is their property ..Legally it is their Responsibility and if they did it regularly it would not be so bad to keep up with ,However , People go All winter into the Spring and still do not to the upkeep which leaves it the other neighbor ( you)to do…People Don’t realize they should K.I.S.S (which means keep it simple stupid – means to put trees ,bushes , flowers that don’t require much maintiance or care …and it won’t over grow the neighbor’s yard….)Now doesn’t that sound like a better idea ? Doesn’t that stop any problems of the yards between neighbors? Then you always have the legal route to go ..Depending on where You live ,You can Start with the City Hall or Town Hall where You Reside,, calling city hall you can have the city code enforcement come out to your home to check on Your neighbor’s yard and show what it is that is going on with the lack of upkeep, which Most cities have a rule or ordinance that says you can cut down whatever is on your property of the neighbor’s bushes, shrubs, trees, flowers , or you can pay for a lawn service and send them the bill.Or the city can find them for not keeping up with their property , But this will cause a problem with and between you and the neighbor ( Sometimes making the problem worse between You both )Or You could just go over to the neighbor and ask them to cut their trees ,bushes shrubs ,flowers But the neighbors may just get upset that you even asked them to do the upkeep of their yards …So You may have to way your options and go from there..Remember It Is Your Home and you have the right to enjoy your property From other people’s trees, shrubs, bushes, flowers over flowing into yours…Please let’s all try to be a good neighbor and try to think of how your neighbor feels and be a decent human being and work things out .After all we have to live with one another ….
