fitted to stop people walking across my front garden, right by my window, to get to next door?


Just bloody rude and lazy.

Be ready with a bucket of water...

"oops...I was just cleaning my windows and the bucket slipped" grin

What about a fence?

HecatesTwopenceworth Tue 23-Jun-09 17:28:33

is it a right of way? if not, put a fence up.

I think it would have to be a fence all the way round to stop them. It is our lawn but they last metre or so is theirs.

Do they have alternative access? Some houses have access through their neighbours garden, is this one?

If not, then yes, fence is probably the only thing that will stop people. - make sure it's too high to climb over!

Not at all.

They just don't want to walk back up our drive, along the pathway and then down to the next door neighbours front door.

there you go. would all be stopped by a fence.

Assuming from your last post that this is not visitors to your neighbours, but door to door callers? Since you say they come to your house first?

It was a man delivering a leaflet for a takeaway. More annoying than usual as we don't have takeaways. The postman does it too.

FGS when DD had a serious accident I thought about it before running across a bit of my neighbours garden.

Could you put a few pot plants or ornaments or something down the edge to deter them? Or a large holly bush? grin

Good thinking but I expect they would step over it. It scared me someone appearing so suddenly so close, and that is what bothered me really.

IKWYM - this used to happen in our last house. I didn't mind children in the street playing on our lawn (apart from when DH had put weedkiller down) but it seemed so lazy to just come to our door and then walk straight across it to get next door. It's not crime of the century but it used to really bother me
