Today’s PetMeds Spotlight is on neighbors who don’t clean up after their pet. There are many solutions that can be found on the Internet from natural to nefarious, but this writer found one that worked for him and will recommend it time and time again.
In my particular case, I had an neighbor that would wake up early and walk his dog to my yard, and because of the early hour, decided he didn’t need to clean up after his pet. (I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt). I discovered this after noticing a fresh pile first thing in the morning after the lawn was was landscaped.
All I did was adjust the time that the sprinklers turned on, initially they were set to a time that would have finished before people were out on their walks as to not to interrupt them. I was trying to be considerate, but was clearly being taken advantage of. Now I am happy to report that the piles have ceased to accumulate, and I couldn’t be happier that my kids don’t have to worry about landmines when their ball goes over the fence.
