My nieghbours are all very tidy and in fact one lot who are ini their 80's spend half their time in the garden, so there is never any rubbish lying on the verge and it is beautifully kept with no rubbish or untidy bits.
It is different on each side. One of our neighbours just has brick and concrete, which needs no upkeep. Not attractive, but neat. On the otherside we have a rented maisonette , with people living on both the ground an first floor. The woman who 'owns' the front and back garden does absolutely nothing to it, so it is in a complete mess.
I live in a very tidy little area,and each of my neighbours are careful to keep their blocks and the adjoining council frontage nice and neat.My neighbour across the road even does mine for me as I am unable to take care of it with my arthritis.
We all get along exceedingly well,and live happily in the same street,with no silly arguments at all!! No wonder I am so content with my life!
A neighbour across the road from us sadly has no idea about keeping his front garden tidy.
He spoils the tone of the neighbourhood and has an attitude that makes him unapproachable.
It seems that there are always at least one in every neighbourhood.
The big question is WHY is that so?
Especially when there is no justification for being like that.
Well, Farley, try disinterest & laziness! There're many people like this, unfortunately. Is it a rented property? If so, renters are required to keep their property in a clean, well-kempt condition. So you could check with Rental Board.
If private house, check with Local Council. They may be able to assist. Cheers!
We are exceedingly blessed. All neighbours are tidy except for the young ones a few doors down the street who have been renovating for months. Thankfully their mess is hidden by a concrete fence so guess once they have finished they will pick their act up.
