I have a neighbor like that too! He drives his lawn mower with this stupid child who drives on his toy tractor, they are out there for hours each day driving over and over and over again he even lets his child drive into things and make a lot of noise they also blast their music really loud, I would tell the police if he doesn´t stop because that is breaking public peace

We asked our neighbour not to mow early in the morning on weekends, he said sorry that's his routine and he can't change it. He would start at 730 and mow leaf blow etc. I found the best way to get the point across was as soon as he had finished the noisy part I would play the power of love on repeat very loudly for the next hour for him to listen too while doing the rest of the yard work. After a few weeks of this he waited until 9 to mow.

It was an old cd player, I put it outside facing his yard. I could only just hear it inside.

Bleach on lawn. Weed killer on lawn.
“Stop mowing”

Alternatively you could be an adult and ask them to stop and be more considerate.

I was not an adult when my neighbour started her the raid which lasted 18 months and ended in my poisoning her entire front garden one evening.

It won't break the mower completely but it will fuck up blades and his day. Get 1/4inch nails and spread them through his lawn. It's the easiest way to do it without getting caught for b&e.

Why would you mow wet grass, it just clogs up and damages the mower!

I had an awful neighbour when I lived in a villa, we shared a wall... New Years Eve she went out all night, leaving the TV on loud 'so it sounds like someone's home' (she explained later). She got home loudly at 7am. I waited til 10am to start to start my gardening... gardening that involved scraping weeds off the pavers with a shovel 😆 you're welcome 😋

Could it possibly be because you are noisy? I only ask as we have neighbours that play loud music outside all night or let their kids run around screaming all night. We have asked them if they could please be quiet outside after 9 pm but they still make noise. We mow our lawn at 7 am on weekends and I let the kids out to play at 630 am and make as much noise as they like (only after nights that have been noisy) to make a point.

Don't break his mower! He will just go get a new one. What will you do, break every mower he replaces? If you get caught, you're in some trouble! Does he seem approachable? Could you have a word with him? Failing that, maybe you need to fight fire with fire. Maybe every day at dinner time or whatever, pump up the volume of some very heavy metal.

Maybe he likes Justin Bieber too, hahaha! I'll tell what is grating my gears right now, the Peppa Pig theme song (yeah, I have a 3 year old). Maybe OP, if you have ear plugs, for yourself of course, have this on a loop for an hour or two when hes outside in his yard trying to enjoy his lovely garden.....

Yeah i know. I wouldn't actually break it. But sometimes i have visions of myself holding his arm under the thing 😅 he is definately not approachable. Treats hid wife like shit- always screaming at her. He pushed her down the stairs once and hubby went over and sorted him out. Shit himself. Only picks on women. But besides that- i might try the music idea! If you cant beat them- join them hey lol!!!

Maybe send hubby over to request he not more every day, or do it later.

That's really out there. Do you live in the tropics or something? How does grass even grow enough to warrant everyday mowing? Can't imagine that it would be very good for his lawn

Sometimes when you're trying to improve the quality of your grass, you have to trim it more often. Although every day does sound excessive. Maybe have a look at your local councils noise policy and send a copy of that anonymously. Or just ask him to wait until later to do it. Or he could use a push blade mower instead of some noisy engine one.
