Yup...there is something definately strange about this man! LOL....everytime a leaf falls off a tree he is out there picking them up with his lawn tractor!! I am not kidding. Today he said he wished they would all just fall off! I am loving looking at the colors. And a few leaves on my yard don't bother me at all. Do you think he is possessed or does he just like driving his lawn tractor? Do you have a neighbor like this?

I had a neighbor who was that obsessed with the lawn. Be careful, this guy ended up murdering his wife. Not over the lawn, but he was just a strange character all the way around.

Yeah this is bizarre but it show that compulsions can lead to craziness sometimes.

Hehehe, yes I do. This guy will run his tractor up until the first snowfall..Then when we start getting lots of snow, he will attach his snow blade and use it to clear his driveway..But I don't mind, sometimes if the snow is really deep, he will also do ours..:)

My current neighbor does about half of my front yard, because "he needs a place to turn his mower around". He would probably do more but I have way too many trees and flowerbeds.

He might have OCD. i can't think of any other reason why he would be doing something like that.

No dear your neighbor is not possessed at all, i have some flower plants on my courtyard, after bath i perform my daily puja (worship), for this i need flowers, i collect fresh flowers from those plants, but before collecting flowers i pickup all the leaves that i see on the ground, it has been my habit of years.. Thanks for sharing. Cheers. Professor. .

no, i don't have neighbors like this. some people do take their yards to extremes while others seem to be totally obsessed about it. i hear about some of them in the news headlines.

Maybe he has OCD and is compulsive about cleaning. Could be that he has nothing to do and finds this entertaining. Either way you look at it, it is kind of strange as, as soon as you pick up the leaves they have piled up again in another area. It is never ending so to be picking a few leaves every chance you get does sound seem strange so try and and not cross the neighbors path.

Gather some friends, and have them dress as trees and fallen leafs for Halloween, and stand outside his house. See if he freaks out, and tries to attack with his precious tractor.

I hear you man,I've always had bad neighbours,but I ask myself,am I that good a neighbour,so I just try not to pay attention,but If this really bothers you,you try talking to him,but don't let him know you're too pretty mad about it,because if he really is obsessed he'll try to drive you crazy.Hope I helped.

I think he is suffering from some illness. I can't remember the term of it but there is a illness whereby the sufferer can't stand if the place is dirty, not even a spark of dust. They will just clean and clean, going in cycle.

i have the worst neighbor... i think she is more possessed than your neighbor. She yells at everyone early in the morning, especially to her 6 yr old son... too loud that it will wake the hell out of you... then she always shouts the nameof her dog... and every night... she does sumthing... like a weird chant that lasts for hours... creepy...

Sounds like he is a Fanatic when it comes to keeping his lawn looking nice, and would rather they all fall at once so he could get them all taken care of, and be done with it. I know I enjoy the Fall color myself and would rather see them on the ground as long as they are not bothering things. I miss jumping in the leave piles like I did when I was growing up.
