I am writing to ask that you please clean up your yard. Ours is a respectable, presentable neighborhood, one in which pride of ownership is evident in each piece of property. When even one yard is allowed to become overgrown and unsightly, it distracts from the overall appearance of the entire neighborhood, resulting in lower property values for us all. Also, I’m sure you’re aware of the health hazard an overgrown yard presents. Tall weeds and out of control grass invite rats and other disease-ridden rodents to take up residence where they would otherwise never think of living.
I don’t mean to be a pest and I want to help in any way that I can. If you need to borrow a few tools to help you get your yard shaped up, you have only to ask. Thank you for your understanding and immediate attention to this request.
