Every once in a while something bothers me enough to mention it here on our blog. Once again, I find myself annoyed.
As many of you know, I recently moved to Denver, CO. Since I did it in the wintertime, I did not have the opportunity to see what kind of neighbors I was dealing with, horticulturally, of course. Sadly, as spring has arrived, so have my headaches.

It appears as though two of the homes surrounding mine are infested with Dandelions. I realize that people have the right to keep their property in as good or as bad a condition as they please, but allowing easily spreadable weeds to overrun your property presents a problem to everyone in the neighborhood.
If you’re presented with a dandelion problem similar to mine, you really only have a few solutions:
- Talk to your neighbor and ask them to take care of the problem
- Get your neighbors to approach those people as a group and ask them to fix the problem
- If you’re in an HOA, report them to the board
- Spray their lawns with chemicals or pick the weeds yourself
None of these are simple solutions. Some people just don’t give a damn.
I’m going to go with solution #1 for my problem. Hopefully I will see positive results. If anyone has any other thoughts or solutions to add, please feel free to comment.
