Dealing with Dirty Neighbors:

“Our immediate neighbors have a difficult time keeping their front and back yards clean. They mow the lawn once per season (if so much) and their backyard in particular is literally full of trash and other junk. Apart from being unsightly it is a breeding ground for vermin and mosquitoes. They are the only house in the immediate vicinity whose yard is so awful. It is disgusting!

Talking to them in a nice neighborly way is to no avail, as the situation has persisted for a very long time.

Living in such tight quarters here in DC, clearly what one house does can affect all the surrounding houses.

What do I do? Help? Can I go to the city? Can I file a complaint somewhere? Can they be fined for this?”
