Check this out.. I came home Thursday from Ohio to find my yard worked over. We have 2 crepe myrtle trees and 2 hibiscus trees in the beds in front of my house. The 2 crepe myrtles were close to 10 ft high with blooms and the hibiscus were probably 5 feet high with blooms. My freaking neighbor took it upon himself to trim these for me. He cut them down to nothing...all the blooms gone. He cut a good 4 feet off the crepe myrtles and a couple off the hibiscus... This coming from a guy who frequently cuts his lawn with a weedeater. My wife was almost in tears and I went off on the guy...dropped an F bomb or two along with a few ***'s. I also made him apologize to my wife. The guy was in total shocked..thought he did me a favor trimming my trees in the middle of summer. Our house is on the market as well which hacks me off...no color anymore..just a bunch of green. My cuz said I was a little hard on him..... Whatcha think? Got any crazy neighbor stories of your own?

I sold my first house after the craziest woman in League City that lived next door cut her yard at 2AM. I did have the chance to hose her down with the water hose once. That one was priceless.

I used to have neighbor that wanted me to rake the leaves that fell off of my tree in the fall out of her yard! The same tree she enjoyed the shade from during the summer. I told her to use her leaf blower and blow them back to my yard and when the rest fall off the tree I will get them cleaned up!!


Well, her house was "downwind" from mine during a norther!! She would blow my way and mother nature would put those leaves right back!!

my most eccentric neighbor went out of town once for about 10 days. he didn't have his newspaper delivery put on hold, and the papers were really building up in his yard. so, trying to be the conscientious neighbor, i started picking up all of his papers, and i threw them in the trash. (who reads 10-day old news)? when he got back, man did i get an earful. apparently he reads 10-day old newspapers. occasionally, trying to do the right thing backfires.

we have a crazy neighbor i guess you could say. we had our boat parked (hooked up) infront of my house blocking my driveway, then another neighbor had his boat the same night parked in teh cul de sac infront of her house because it is to big to fit infront of his. well she called the HOA on us both complaining mine was in her way and she could not get out of her driveway. and then she complained about his being parked at the end of the street (3 houses down) because it was infront of her house. yep we got letters from the HOA. the thing was the weekend before we took her and her husband ( a really nice guy) out skiing tho weeks before. then my maid/nanny got a car and was driving it for about 3 weeks, always parking it in my driveway. well one sunday she could not park there so she parked it under teh street light in the cul de sac for the night. this lady called the cops on teh car saying it had been there for a couple of days and she didnt knwo whos it was. now her son comes over to play almost everyday with my son and she has even sat on the bumper of this car. she even comes over and "plays" like our best friend as if nothing has ever happened.

If he would have done that in JANUARY, He would have been doing you a favor.

I hope they don't get Fungus and die.

You may want to call an Arborist, and ask advice.

You should only trim your Crepe's when it's Cool/Cold.

There are monetary losses there, especially since you're trying to sell your home. Another good reason to talk to an arborist, or tree specialist, or whatever the term is.

If they kill over on me before the house sells, I might have to weedeat his flower beds...actually, that might do him a favor. They look like @ss anyway. The dude plants to most random **** in the middle of his yard.

Not to worry about the crepes. One thing I've learned in 35 years of home ownership is that if nuclear war ever comes the plant survivors will be Johnson Grass, Bannana Plants and Crepe Myrtles. They're gonna look pretty scragly for a few weeks, but they'll be back just fine before Fall weather. The Hibiscus on the other hand may a problem. They aren't going to recover too well in this heat.

If a prospective buyer shows up you can always tell them your wife is experimenting with plant sculpting:eek:hwell: .

Neighbors? You guys ain't got no stinking neighbors. If the cops aren't showing up next door at least twice a week, count your blessings. They knocked on our door one night asking if the 17 yr old neighbor boy was at our house. They finally found him hiding in the attic in 100 degree heat and busted him for drug dealing. What's an HOA?LOL
