Fences: 10 Reasons to Argue with Neighbors

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop, the e-commerce specialized in fences. Today, we talk about fences and neighbors, a combination that often leads to arguments. Coexisting with neighbors can be complicated, and we at Fenceshop know this very well. In this article, we will explore ten common reasons why neighbors argue, based on true stories we hear every day in our store.

Two Common Situations with Neighbors

If you have a house with a garden, you probably find yourself in one of these two situations: either you get along with your neighbors, or you hate each other. A survey revealed that 40% of arguments between neighbors occur for reasons related to the garden and the outdoor area. In many cases, a fence can be at the center of the dispute.

The Ten Main Reasons for Arguing with Neighbors

Below, we list the ten main reasons why neighbors argue, based on the experiences our customers share with us.

  • Shared fence: The fence is owned by the neighbor, but we have to pay for it. This is one of the most common reasons for discord.
  • Common fence: The fence is shared, but one of the two wants to change it while the other does not, often for economic reasons.
  • Intrusive hedges: The neighbor's hedges grow beyond the boundary and invade our space. In such cases, we recommend using products like Divy Hedera or Divy Laurus to mask the view.
  • Privacy: The neighbor is too curious and constantly watches us. To solve this problem, we suggest installing meshes like Stilplax or Vortek to ensure privacy.
  • Disorder: The neighbor keeps their garden in disarray, and we don't want to see the chaos. Products like Divy 3D Trellis can help cover the view.
  • Dangerous animals: The neighbor has dogs that can be dangerous. In such cases, it is important to install a robust mesh like Replax TL to protect children and pets.
  • Dry leaves: Dry leaves from the neighbor's trees keep falling into our garden. A mesh like Ortoclima can be useful to solve this problem.
  • Boundaries: The neighbor tends to expand their space beyond the boundary. A well-defined fence like Tubolario can help clarify the limits.
  • Unwanted passage: The neighbor uses our land to pass through. A fence like Arcodecò can prevent unauthorized access.
  • Separated fences: In some cases, neighbors hate each other so much that they install two side-by-side fences. Each pays for and manages their own fence, for example, with Goticdecò or Ondadecò.

These are just some of the reasons why neighbors can argue. If you have similar experiences, we invite you to share them in the comments. Your stories could inspire new videos and articles.
