Holy s***! A huge hole in my yard!!! *PIC HEAVY*

So they are reconstructing our street and we were told they would only dig a hole about 5 feet into our yard. Well every day its a little bigger! Looks like more than 5 feet to me! It also sucks that we live on the corner because they have been parking their heavy equipment on our yard (not on the street that they are working on), including a semi truck (thats the tracks in the picture) and for some weird reason there are now little dirt piles all along that side and on the other side of the fence. Its like right on the fence...wth?


We were told that they would fix the 5 feet that they would tear  up and seed. They better! And not just on the street being reconstructed! They better fix the yard on the side too! And isnt the garbage a nice touch. I tried taking the kids out to play (I run a daycare out of the home) and the smoke from them taking their smoke breaks was too much. They all stand in the corner of my yard in a group and smoke.  I cant wait until this is all over with!


FYI I know the yard isnt looking the best to begin with but we just had a long winter. It was just snowing last week! So its slowly coming back.

Oh goodness girl that's not right and I know having the kids couped up inside probably isn't fun for you or them I run a daycare from home myself. The smoking from them they have no right to be doing that by your house especially since you have kids I would definitely report that because of smoke the kids are inhaling that. Just my opinion hope they get it done quick :-)

Keep all the pics in case you have to SUE them. My Hubby works in road Construction and when they do a Job they have to fix any Damage done to Property's while working on a Job they can't just leave it looking like shit.   I would also call the City (or even the Company doing the work there) and ask them what their policies are concerning all of that it might be diff. where you're at .  Good luck i hope it ends well :0)

yep and there is a child care center right next door to us ( I think you can see it in my fence pictures) and across the street in the front yard is a park...with no smoking!

Oh and they should have designated Parking areas for their heavy equipment which DOES NOT include Peoples yards PERIOD,They should have came to you and asked Permission to park there !

Keep the pics, take pics of them parking in your yard and complain to the city about it. That's ridiculous.
