After Rand Paul Was Allegedly Attacked by Neighbor, Expert Shows How to Prevent 'Yard Rage'
It seems to be as simple as communication.
The neighbor allegedly was angry because the U.S. Senator, who was mowing his lawn at the time of the attack, had blown lawn trimmings onto his property.
To avoid your own brush with "yard rage," there are some tips to keep in mind, especially during the fall when leaves are everywhere.
Bob Borzotta is the author of Neighbors From Hell. He says there is an etiquette to follow as people are consumed with raking leaves and other yard work.
“This is an age-old problem on steroids,” he said. “When you are blowing leaves or doing some landscaping work, if some of your mess winds up over the boundary in the neighbor's yard, go over, sweep it back, blow it back. Don't start trouble, and your neighbors will be just as kind to you.”
Once those leaves are cleared, the next problem we face is winter, and with it — snow removal.
Instead of blowing snow on your neighbor’s yard and vice-versa, Borzotta says to talk it out first.
“It's a good idea to communicate in advance with your neighbor. ‘Hey, I’m gonna be doing some yard work, if any gets over in your area on your property, I’ll be sure to clean it up as soon as I can,'" he suggests.
Paul’s neighbor has denied any wrongdoing.
