Default neighbor issues.

Or more specifically the neighbors kids. So the renters next door seem to run a daycare service. Cars coming and going all day and night, lots of little kids, honking horns etc. Well these kids cant seem to stay out of my yard, and thats not really an issue. What IS an issue is these kids messing up my yard. The trow their trash in it, dig holes, move planter bricks around, make a mess, and of course never clean up their mess. Now these are all very young kids I would say the oldest is 12 or 13 the rest are 8 and below. I have tried to be Mr nice guy and I have just picked up after them and kicked their trash into their own yard but I'm getting tired of it. ******* ****deleted*********** or be a bad neighbor in return especially since I'm gone so much. Whats the best way to deal with this problem? I'm thinking about putting a fence along that side of the yard and hopefully the adult if there is one will get the idea and keep the kids in line, but I'm not holding out for that one...

What do you guys think?

Move? Or call the county on them if you can prove they are running an illegal business then the county will shut them down, the other option is to have an accidental fire that spreads.
all kidding a side they could be dealing dope out of there. Can you install a CCTV camera and a DVR to record the activity?

I just moved in a year ago so no im not going anywhere. The drug thing did cross my mind. I dont want to make trouble, i just want some adult supervision. The kids are still out there at nearly 9:30 on a school night, some of them are in diapers!

Put up a chain link fence. That will keep the little 'uns out of your yard. Even an 8 year old understands a fence and that was the only way we could keep our 40 YO neighbors from messing around in our yard.

Ya a chain link fence sounds like the best idea so far.

Get a dog......a big one. After a German Shepard runs around out there for a week or 2 they will put up a fence themselves!!!!!!

A buddy of mine was in a similar situation, except it was dogs not children. Long story short, he put up a fence and the neighbors were more offended that he put up a fence and their dogs didn't have as much room to run. Fence is the best idea for sure, putting a dog in that fence isn't a bad follow-up idea to any wise-ass kids who want to hop the fence.

Who cares what color they are? Bad neighbors are just that , bad. I wouldn't put up with any of that bs. We live in a great neighborhood on the water and my neighbors are awesome. Black on the left and white on the right!

Kenny, I know you got a pool, you'd better do something PDQ before something bad happens and you end up getting your butt sued over it.

my backyard already has privacy fenceing and no tresspassing signs and the pool itself has another fence around it. I should be safe there. And yes bad neighbors are bad neighbors I shouldn't have even brought that part up.
