Okay, for the most part, the brotherhood here seems like a reasonable bunch of guys (and gals). So, I’ve got a question and need some opinions. I’ve lived in my house for just over a year now. It’s a new subdivision and the house right next door is finally being built. It’s probably a month or so away from being done. Anyway, it seems that the neighboring house’s back yard is low enough that water builds up there when it rains. So, the builder (actually the subcontractor) cut a sort of trench between our property lines. The only problem that I have with it is that they cut about five feet onto our yard. See pic.(sorry it is a pretty poor picture. I eyeballed the property line in with paint, so it may not be exact) My yard was pretty nice too before they cut it. They told me that they will re-sod the yard, but I’ve got a problem with the new slope (towards the back of the picture). It’s going to be a problem mowing it now and not scalping the yard with the mower because of the drop off. It looks like they’re just going to leave it and re-sod it as it is. I hate it when someone doesn’t do a job correctly. Worst case scenario, I can pull up the sod after they lay it down and I can add some dirt myself. But, I kind of have a problem with them just cutting into my yard like that anyway. Any ideas or suggestions?
