Neighbors Asks This Guy To Pay For Fence To Keep Their Dog In Their Yard

Making the decision to remodel and modify your backyard requires a lot of effort and commitment. And when you and your lover do it, at last, something happens. Isn’t the timing perfect? Oh then, you can pretty much do whatever you want since it’s your backyard. Organize a few things, make some landscaping improvements, add or remove some plants, pull out some unnecessary weeds—do anything! Your choice, your backyard! But things start to get a little wild when you take away something that has been there for a while and has actually served as a fence for your neighbors (for the neighbors and not you).

This is the game that @u/mspendlove and his wife played for today’s AITA in their backyard. His neighbors were not particularly pleased when he removed several large, ten-year-old bushes from their backyard because there was no longer anything for them to keep their dog in. And things got even crazier when their neighbors asked them both if they could afford to pay for a real fence so that their dog wouldn’t escape through it. Does he really owe their neighbours a fence, is the query the OP is attempting to address. Is he responsible for removing a large, ageing bush from their backyard?

Here’s the sitch:

Isn’t OP so thoughtful? Putting his neighbor’s feelings first before stating his message.

Well, the point of all this is it was their lawn. There’s a point.

Emphasis on “our property” and the whole sentence is points out that it wasn’t their obligation to pay for anything.

Well, it was also shocking to pay for something on your own property because your neighbor told you so.

All we know is that it was OP’s backyard. He’s free to add or remove anything in it.

Unless you share a backyard maybe? But this isn’t the case.

Simply wait for the OP to provide that further information. The issue of who would pay for the fence would be resolved if everyone was aware of where the property line is. We must also discuss the scurry dog and how terrified it is of the fence! What a good idea it is to remodel your backyard. What do you now think?
