Neighbours walking on our drive and lawn
245

Lochnessgiraffe · 28/03/2022 13:08

Our neighbours keep walking over our lawn and drive. Our neighbours to the left have stopped doing this once we spoke to them but currently our neighbours to the right keep doing this. We've been having problems with them as they are having building work done and have had to stop their builders parking on our drive.
We don't have a car so they've previously asked to park on our drive but we've said no. They are now constantly walking over our lawn. Our living room over looks the lawn so we see it constantly it's driving us nuts.
We've asked them to stop. What can we do about this? We're actually trying to move due to the neighbours.

Put up a fence to stop them?

Fence. Or automatic sprinklers?

Fence.

Or some kind of bramble affair.

Or well placed poo for them to step in.

Unfortunately no fence is possible due to the way the lawns and drives are set up.
Sprinkler could be fun!

I'd do the sprinkler thing. If they get shitty about getting wet, you are watering the lawn and didn't expect random people to be wandering about on your garden uninvited. Rude fuckers.

Why are they walking on it? Is it an access route for them somewhere? Seems pretty strange.

They walk from one neighbour to the other and we're in the middle. As neighbour to the left in currently parks on neighbour to the right drive due to the building work

Can you put a ring doorbell up or similar might be a good visual deterrent

Mumsnet rules: we need a diagram!

Annoying that they do that.

Is it a public right of way, is it your lawn on your title deeds, why can’t you put a fence up?

Get a load horn and honk it out the window everytime you see them on your lawn.

Nonsense. Of course you can put in a fence. Show us a drawing at least

We're in the middle with an x. Grass is green and drive is stripy.

Isn’t that the point?

Could you get a sprinkler system like the fountains of Versailles so it would follow them across your lawn? Or maybe like those ones at the Bellagio which would come up in a ring around them when they reach the centre?

Why would a sprinkler be motion set to come on when people are nearby? Surely it would do the opposite and turn off!

Why couldn’t you put a fence on your bit of grass?
