How do I get my neighbor to stop mowing part of my lawn??
I think my new neighbor expected more property than he got. He removed the stakes (left by the surveyor when the property was sold) a month ago. Then he started mowing a (large) portion or my front and side yard. I know it is not the end of the world but, it really bothers me. My husband (who does not mow our lawn) thinks I am being petty and ridiculous. My husband did once point out to the neighbor where the property lines are but, he persists. I couldn't care less about grass but, it is MY grass and I want our neighbor to leave it alone. I do not want to cause ill will but, I do want him to stop. Can anyone suggest a firm (yet diplomatic) way to stop this?

There is an old saying that goes: "Fences make for good neighbors!" Seriously, if you cannot afford a fence, I suggest some starter size thorny bushes...Barberry comes to mind, that grow high and very quickly and are QUITE effective at establishing "boundaries!" You can buy saplings VERY inexpensively HERE:
They're only $25 for 25 sapplings with FREE membership (they'll be nearly full grown in 2 seasons--but certainly big enough to keep people out!) I believe shipping is free with a $60 order! Such a small price to pay to peacefully deal with neighbors! LOL :o)
