I doubt it. I may have even done it myself if the need presented itself after prolonged rain etc. None of us have huge yards so it wouldn't go on for long anyway. The ones across the road with their *doof doof* music blasting for hours are the worm in this neighborhood's apple.
Absolutely not, but there will always be some who like to grumble. It doesn't matter what the time is, there will always be someone who is not happy. I would be more upset if it was 7.30 in the morning, when moat good folk are asleep or trying to rest, especially if they had a late night the previous night. My ideal time for lawn mowing would be after lunch, but not everyone is home then to do it on a Sunday. We tend to do ours whenever we have the time and if it's a Sunday, so be it.
If it wasn't for the fact that we didn't have to work 7 days a week 24 hours a day we wouldn't have this problem. To answer your question, yes it bothers me. I would love to have peace and quiet on a Sunday.
It doesn't worry me. I love the smell of freshly mown lawn. The noise doesn't last long as we have small yards and I am pleased people maintain their yards.
Now, years ago when I lived elsewhere the guy next door chose to panel beat the latest dings out of his car at 2am or 3am in the morning on occasions and that did annoy the heck out of me. Also when he came home from doing burn outs at the foreshore and was on the rims of the hubs and sparks were flying and the racket was unreal. This was also in the wee hours of the morning and would wake the street up. Yes, he had 'problems' and he was known to the police. People maintaining their lawns doesn't bother me.
Margee, yes. Our neighbour has now reached the point where she can no longer mow the lawn herself. She too is over eighty. I wonder if it would be easier if the mowers weren't so darn heavy. Does your neighbour mow your lawn?
I would prefer not to listen to lawn mowers at that time, but if someone needs to mow and this is when they can do it, I understand. I try to mow my lawn during the week so the weekends are peaceful, but I know everyone can't do that. I don't like mowers early in the morning any day, as I really savour the peace of the morning.
