Dear PoPville – Has Anyone Had Success Dealing with a Neighbors Overgrown Back Yard?

Dear PoPville,

Our neighbor’s yard is completely overgrown with weeds and is now so bad it’s growing into our back yard as well. We are back there a lot with our dogs and to grill. The mosquitos and bugs are horrible and we’ve seen several opossums which we’re afraid will hurt our dogs. Our neighbor is an elderly lady with in house nurses and she rents out the basement and I believe some rooms to family/friends. Is it illegal to have a small forest in your back yard? What can we do to encourage her to take care of it?

Please note there is a car parked in their back yard that you can’t even see it’s so bad. Any suggestions are welcome.

You can read about DCRA’s seasonal grass-cutting rules here. Has anyone successfully dealt with a similar situation?
