Your Leaves.. You pick em up!

I'm probably wrong in this thinking, but I don't have any trees in my front yard. However..... my neighbor has a tree and it dumps all it's leaves in my front lawn. You think he offers to come over and help me clean up after his tree? I'm talking 8 or 9 bags of leaves just from his tree.

Here is my thinking... your tree, your mess, you come clean it up.

Good luck with that sattie.

Maybe you could invest in a blower and just blow them back into his yard?

LOL I thought you were talking about me.....
My tree in front has been falling and blowing around...but I havent bought a rake yet to clean them! I went to Target to get one but surprisingly they had no garden tools right now! The garden area is filled with Christmas stuff! But I just know my neighbors are starting to tap their fingers....I can just see them in their houses drummin those fingers every chance they get....(paranoid...who me??)
Also when I had my lawn guy come this weekend I thought for sure he would just mow them up, wrong again! He kinda just pushed them around and preceeded to tell me he doesn't do leaves (is that kinda like saying "I don't Do Windows!!) but in gardener??

In my town, you just rake them into the street. They memmow there and blow around some, after a while, at a secretly appointed time, the borrough comes around with a giand vacuum and sucks them up. bo baga, no picking up, just rake.

This almost the only service the borrough offers. LOL

I believe that onge the leaf departs the tree, it enters the public domain. Once it lands on your lawn, it becomes yours.

We don't have trees in the front yard either. So we get some blow in from the mighty oaks around us...
I just remind myself that it could be MUCH MUCH worse, LOL!

We have curb pile leaf pickup too. Many neighbors not only ignore the law that says leaves must be in the yard not in the street... they put them ENTIRELY in the street. Not a leaf on their property. Which makes our streets .75 lanes wide. Wish I had a superblower in my truck bed I could use to put the leaves back in their yard where the law says to keep them, LOL! (rant over, return to your normal reading, LOL)

I think you're right, AC. That's why the blower would work best - puts them in the public domain again.

does the tree hang over into your property?

you can cut straight up your property line if it does.

Have you spoken to the nieghbor? maybe work something out.

or you can just rack them onto a tarp and drag the leaves back over to his property

We have a few big trees on our property that hang over into our neighbors property and they have trees that hang into ours. This is the first house that I have owned so I did not know how any of this worked. I asked around and the general consensus here is that you only own what is over your property. If a tree branch hangs into your property then it is your responsibility. I would guess that goes for the leaves too.
