On one side of me the fence fell I left it laying there for over a year. Finally the neighbor got mad and told me we have to do somthing about it I agreed I told her I would get a bid she said ok let her know how much I did she said ok. Any how a week before they were going to put the fence up I told her she was going to have to trim her plants she did not the night before this half indian boy went out and got wild on her bushes !!!!!!! She was pissed. I didnt care because by that time I was pissed too. She did not pay me for half the fence I had a 8 ft tall fence put up . She complained and complained I did not care she did not talk to me for over two years until she was almost dying and her mom ask me if I would go and get her some medicine and leave it on her front porch and I did it was hard but I did it. Thats the way I was tought. She found out it was me who left the medicine and came over crying and telling me how bad she felt for all the things she said. Thats my story and im sticking to it. The two girls from Hawaii on the other side of me did help me with the cost of there side of the fence plus they helped me take down all my old fence and put it in the dumpster. The guy behind me said he would pay for half of his and he didnot.
Good luck to ya. And by the way bananas are really ok. Maybe you should try some.
Nice closure for all involved. I keep reminding myself that there is yet another life lesson in there for me with MY HERO. I really do have that philosophy; it's daily living it that's hard. Thanks for the reminder.

This should fix the problem that effects your property thus not effecting a flower-bed of what you have on your side.
Again, Zero Lot Line Homes, fence errected directly on top of line. Seems fair, nobody lost any land.

So then.

The ole quiet dusty back roads Farm Supply in my husband dirty SUV vs. my Betsy's Beautiful Baskets and Boquets Boteaque in my perkey black Beetle Bug with the pink geranium in the dash, huh?

Confession: last summer, on one particulaly hot and humid and hiddious Texas afternoon, I snuck in the house! With stealth, I quicky grabbed the ice pick from the kitchen drawer! I looked around. No one saw me....

....ok, so i did stop and whack off a chunk of ice to crunch before...

....I surrepticiously tip toed back out in my flip flops and trudged around angy mounds of fire ants, as only Texas can grow um....hush....I waited...hungry hoards of mosquitos gatherd around me and between the toes of my cute flip flops (and I had just had my toes painted too!)...while I remain stealth under the scratchy, ragged, nasty brown broken leaves. Taking a deep breath, and with all the pent-up rage that only a Sargent of Arms at our Garden Club can wield, I repeated plunged that ice pick, again and again....hmmm let's say maybe an inch or so (?) or so into the flesh of the largest, meanest, oldest and most scarey BT ever!

Then I slopped a couple tablespoons of liquid edger into the mortal wounds I inflicted on that sucker!

True Story.

...spread the word....don't mess with Texas Women!.

PS - When I buy the siringe, what product do you recommend for the poison? Thanks!

If it were me I'd be transplanting those pups

But If it was wrecking my fence I'd be cutting everything off that was on my side of the fence
I topped 3 Maple trees that were hanging over my side of the fence
Never asked the neighbor....but I'm sure they didn't mind (2 huge Oaks there)

And report him to the HOA..again & again & again & again
Last house neighbors let there dog run free
I called the Police & Dog catcher so many times they finally came & took the dog - after fining the owner $300
And call your insurance company
Have them call HIS insurance company regarding the damage to your property
INSURANCE COMPANY!!!! WHY HAVEN'T I THOUGHT OF THAT! PERFECT!
And your right, letters (I'll send certified) to HOA and the City.
THANK YOU!!!!!
PS - I love bananas and eat them most every day, local Farmer's Market
not growing my own, OR HIS, on a small Zero Lot Line Lot.

Banana died within a week. At first it yellowed, than browned and then went black.

This (as I later found out) also works with some invasive trees, such as Sambucus for my zone.

But beware, such damage could be described as crime on someone else's property. If that someone can prove it. And I'm not talking about the moral point of view...

I've been cutting and eliminating trees all over my yard for about 2 years now and had to "remove" several trees from my neighbour's yard, because he refused to trim them. Luckily for me, he doesn't go to that part of garden very often, but then, there's no way of saving any plant after spraying. Maybe only if it rained immediately after you go along spraying things.
Maybe it's the Zone 9-10 issue here.

I call it imminent domain, time to take your property back. Knuclehead might plant another but may think twice before doing so.
Appreciate you thoughts and your time responding...BUT...there are SO MANY BAD stories...about HIM....for real and I'm dead serious here. One doesn't get to be so old and so alone without good reason.

You confirm the other posts that I could/should and WILL stop being so like "Mr. Rodgers" as in, sung liltingly, "won't you be my neighbor."
Thanks.

Default Re: Good neighbor but bad on fencing

Boy i hear every one on this issue i had a tree that was clearly on my property. its was over 24" away from my neighbors fences. this tree was well over 300 years old. there were no visible roots on his side of the fens. he asked me to trim the tree several time each time i did. its was a magnificent tree. i went away on vacation for 2 weeks and when i cam home he had hired an arborest to cut my tree to the ground. i was not only incised but was so sad this three provided a wonderful back drop to my yard. needles to say this is what i did.

one i filed a trespassing complaint against my neighbor.r i subpoenaed him for the name of the Co that did the work. i filed trespassing complaints against the Co. they had to pay a hefty fine. the Neighbor got all belligerent on the judged. he went to jail for 90 days. the judge also awarded me 10,000.00 for the tree. a mature tree is worth any were from 5000 to 10000 depending on age. as i said this tree was over 300 years old considered irreplaceable legally. the Neighbor refused to pay the fine. so i made a motion to the Court to seize his bank account. he didn't like that cam to my door at 10 at night drunk as a skunk took a swing at me. I called the police he then took a swing at the cop and ended up with a rather severe beating for resisting arrest. he went to jail for 5 years. i went back to court and asked for a motion to place a lean for the rest of the money for the unpaid potion of the diet he owed me was granted. mean wail the bank that held the mortgage on his house foreclosed. i then filed a motion to seas the house for non payment of the lean was granted based on the fact that it was 2 years older then his mortgage deliquesce. he really pissed of the judge again in that appearance was fined again for mouthing off. i was able to send his House to action i got my money the Bank got the leftovers and he went to jail!

the point to all this is be a good Neighbor and do the right thing. it can turn ugly really fast and ones the courts get involved things can spiral out of your control. you can loose every thing over a silly fence. is is worth it i say no the money i got just covered my legal fees for the hole thing. in the end i had no tree it took up an enormous amount of time this all happened over a 3 year period and pretty much a life got ruined over a fence a tree and a lack of respect for others

which brings up the last point no mater what You have legal rights the law is on your side if you are preforming you duties as a good Neighbor you can fours any one living on an adjacent property to trim maintain or pay for 50% to 100% of the cost to fix maintain or replace a fence or water way if they are not preforming there Co-Duties most of which if you are a well prepared you can do with out a lawyer in small clams Court i say this if all civility has passed with no avail then seek advice from an attorney its worth it to resolve most of the time a simple letter out lining your position and explaining the consequences of inaction will resolve it

What I story! I feel your pain on that one. I had a neighbor back in the late 90's the wife and husband were drunks and they had 3 kids. My kids didn't really want to play with their kids (they cussed and threw rocks at cars. etc.) So the mother decided that we must of thought we were better than they were and for 2 years had problems with them until we ended up moving, 2 other neighbors moved because of them as well...one time my wife called the police because the husband got in my face tried to take a swing at me I dodged the blow he fell to the ground (drunken blows are sometimes easy to dodge). Someone had called code enforcement numerous times on them as they ran a mechanic shop out of the house and had a yard full of all kinds of different items all the time. I never called but all the neighbors that lived next to him called yet for some reason they thought it was my wife that kept calling code enforcement, yet she never did. It was crazy...

I had a black lab at the time, she wanted a piece of those neighbors so bad was so interesting to be able to see a dogs emotions so apparent. She really hated those people, fortunately she was so well trained that she wouldn't do anything that I didn't tell her to do... lol

ut oh... lol First of all I have Lesbian neighbors as 2 of 6 neighbors. The only problem neighbor I have is an older fellow that lost his butt on Enron. Of course he blames them, but then again he was so old he should have been in bonds or something safe. 5% for good advice is better than having nothing. He's a sourpuss to say the least. The reason I don't have wilbur & templeton (my pot belly pigs) lol.. I had to find them a home down the road.
Of course I have the best looking yard of the bunch. I don't gloat I know what makes me happy, and going to have the environment around me when I walk out any of my doors. Its all about being happy and the pursuit.. :^) I have new pot belly named pork chop.. lmao

i thank you all for your supportive stores i think were I'm coming from is that no one should be a prisoner in their own community fight back if you think its worth it I'm a bit of a pioneer at hart and all get my shot gun out metaphorically if any one threatens my home or my "Alternative family" LOL
there are just some things you cant let slide and theres others that just arnt worth the hassle but the impotent thing is to stick to you principals as long as it is health and makes sense in the long run

I'm sure you have all herd of the two neighbors the sue each other for years on end over a silly disagreement i don't want to find my self in that place ether
