Question Yard clean up (neighbor) delema..

So we have leaves EVERYWHERE in my front yard and typically wait until they are mostly done falling before they dreaded rake/bagging them up (we typically bag up around 50-60 barrell sized bags). We have 4 large maples, 2 hickory and a few smaller trees that really put out some leaves. Now my delema is we have that cold front come in last night and the wind was really whipping around and to my suprise (and not my neighbors) all my leaves ended up in his yard across the street. He dosent do his own yard work but has a company do the clean ups, should I offer to help with the clean up some how or ignore the whole thing? Its kinda the nature of the beast around here with all the trees in the neighborhood but dang my yard looks good

That's a tough one...but in general , if you clean your yard a few times during the fall / winter - you've done your part.... after all, next week the wind could be blowing back in YOUR direction...

Whats drive's me crazy is people who do nothing all fall / winter and are glad to let the wind distribute THEIR leaves to the neighbors who are trying to keep the neighborhood looking nice.

I lived in a colonial wooded lot neighborhood with 30'+ oaks and hickory trees for 17 years. We raked almost every weekend from October through December....it was by no mistake my current home has only (4) trees....(2) are less than 10' and the other (2) are miniatures. [ATTACH][/ATTACH]

My yard is full right now from my neighbors trees.
I am sure he would rake them if I asked, but they're in my yard by no fault of his.
It's nature, I love the trees. I mulch them, blow them and/or rake them as needed.
You may offer and see what he says. If he has a service, they'll probably take care of it.

The answer is simple, what would you expect from your neighbor should the roles be reversed? A good neighbor is an asset, I wouldn't want to upset anyone over something as minor as leaf clean up.

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away!

Wait till March, they will be back.

Seriously, my yard is full of my neighbors leaves as we speak. He came over and mulched my yard today with his mower.

We have a neighbour who spends 8 hours a day picking stray leaves off his perfect lot. I love trees, I love leaves… not to sure if he loves me.

That's funny !! I do them couple times in the fall then finish in the spring when we get home. Oaks will fall all winter.

I say do your own thing. Living on a corner I get a bird's eye view of the neighbourhood. A couple neighbours rake daily. One mulches with his bag lawn mower. Me I have watched the leaves come and go and come back again for long enough so we pick this Saturday for the rakeup (forecast sunny and 60). It would be boring if everybody did the same thing at the same time.
