If you're on your own property, you should be able to do what you want, right? Especially in your own yard. Nope. Just because it's your property, doesn't mean that you aren't bothering others.

Most of us put off doing any yard work until the very last minute. It's either too hot or it doesn't sound fun or we just don't want to do it. Why is it that ideas and memory comes to us at night? I'll lay down in bed and then, all of a sudden it occurs to me all the things I had forgotten during the day.

Mowing the lawn could be one of those things.

If you know you can't put it off any longer and head out to mow at night when the sun is going down - for now, that means it's after 9:00 p.m. you could get a visit from the police.

Andy, who lives in Boise, got a visit from the Boise Police about "disturbing the neighbor's peace." The noise ordinance kicks in at 10:00 p.m. so Andy was confused because he's done the same thing for the past 12 years.

Guess what? It doesn't matter the time. According to 6 on your side, if you're out mowing or using an edger or even spraying down your house (don't judge, I totally do this), you could be given a citation if your neighbors aren't happy with the noise you're making. It could be at any time during the day or night.

Get ready for some sweaty afternoons or making friends with your neighbors.
