Debate. Who should rake the leaves?

So we have this tree in our front yard that drops SO MANY LEAVES in the fall. I have tried to keep up with raking but after I get that done once a new layer accumulates. SO it was a very windy day and all of our leaves flew into our landscaping neighbors yard. He even has people that work for him continuously fixing their yards. Well instead of picking them up he spend an hour+ leaf blowing them up and back into our yard. Should he have done this or taken care of it himself?

My mom has a neighbour across the road like that and I laugh every time I see him do that because they're just going to blow right back into his yard..

That's just nature. Your neighbor should rake them. It probably took him as long to blow them back in your yard as it would have to just clean them up. I raked yesterday. I certainly didn't go through the leaf piles to make sure the leaves fell off of my own trees.

My dh does the yard work and never rakes because it's better for the grass but it drives my neighbor crazy lol

It's funny af because we don't live in the nicest neighborhood but the yard is immaculate. Water fountains, lovely walkway, nothing out of place. We also had a laminated postcard with yard services on our doorstep that week.
