Advice on the new neighbors

Okay, so I just moved into the neighborhood about 6 months ago. The people next to me just moved in about 1 month ago.

How do I tell them, I've never met them by the way, that they need to mow their backyard without coming across like a dickhead neighbor. Having never met them, I don't want to start things off on a bad foot, but their lawn is shin high and it's starting to piss me off.

Interestingly, they have mowed the front lawn twice.

Put up a fence? Good fences make for good neighbors.

Anti-freeze will definitely kill the grass but then again so will fire.

You don't. Unless there's a HOA, you really don't have any say in how they care for their lawn.

My guess is they do the front to keep up appearances, but are too lazy to do the back. If they gave a shit how you felt about it, they probably wouldn't let it get to that point to begin with. Any way you approach the subject, whether they take it as rude or neighborly, is unlikely to make any long term impact on their laziness.

It sucks to live next to those sort of people, but you really have no say in it. Maybe you could check with city hall to see about ordinances, but I doubt it's bad enough (yet) to warrant any action.

Walk over to the neighbors on the OTHER side of them, and place a note there saying:

Dear neighbor, please mow your damn lawn, it looks like shit. Do not ask me about this note, I will deny ever writing or placing it here.

Talk to city hall, see if they have a nuisance inspector/enforcer. He can give them a "to be in compliance by... or else....." letter.

But that will just lead to them finding out it was you anyways.

At least then you won’t have to look at the field mouse, flea and mosquito farm.

I know. I read the title and first thing I thought was the neighbors slapped down a kiddy pool in the driveway and are sitting in it downing Milwaukee’s Best by the case.

Same thing happened to me when my new neighbor moved in. I eventually went over and just mowed it. It turns out that it was a single woman who hadn't been able to find someone to mow it for her yet. She was very thankful, which made me feel bad since I did it out of spite.
