Next door neighbor has not mowed once this year. Is this going to
cause more voles, wildlife etc into his/our yards?
I don't know what is going on with him. I know his wife left him for another woman and took the kids with her, and he was pissed. I also know her income was crucial to supporting their expensive home....
I don't know if it's money troubles, feeling mad at the world, or depression, but whatever the reason he's gone from someone who mowed once a week like clockwork, to having 3 acres of nothing but hay. I'm not concerned about the eyesore so much, we're rural and people have the right to maintain their lawns as they see fit. But I am concerned about snakes, voles etc. It actually looks pretty spooky over there.
I told dh I thought about mowing his place today while he (the neighbor) works, and dh said no way!
I just want to help the dude if he can't afford to mow. I know from living next to him for 11 years that his lawn used to mean everything to him.
Should I just butt out, and plan in the future to buy more mouse/vole traps etc?
