neighbours offended that I suggested hiring a skip

My neighbours front garden is an eye saw, they habe a old kitchen unit next to the bin, an overgrown bush messy, grass that's barely cut twice a week. Some weeds poping up through the concrete.
I've joked many times about it but it really does bring the street down. Other day I suggested hiring a skip, since then they've ignored me. They are just being precious right?

I think you were being rude.
They have as much right to live happily in a shit-tip as you do to live somewhere neat.
If there isn't rubbish/food waste there to attract rats and pests then it's got sod all to do with you, even if it does 'bring the street down'

I think that your 'jokes' haven't really helped although I understand that you probably saw them as kind/ non aggressive hints.
Now they have been wound up by what they probably saw as digs they will see your comment about a skip as the last straw.
What are they like? Could you talk to them and say that you didn't want to fight with them but the house looks messy and it must annoy them too - did they want to get it taken away, could you help?
