Maybe you have seen it a dozen times throughout the summer, a neighbor that has not cut their lawn in weeks.


I certainly have and I'll admit that I've been that neighbor a time or two where my lawn gets a little long compared to other houses on the block.

Sometimes other tasks get in the way of the lawn care, especially if one isn't retired and staring at it all day or one can't afford a crew to come over and take care of it.

As one sits looking at at that overgrown lawn next door, you might have a thought.

"Should I just go over there while they are gone and just mow the dang lawn?"


Is it legal for someone to mow a lawn without permission?

According to The Lawn Mower Guru, I may not be a good idea to head over there without permission. In certain aspects it might be kind of rude to do it yourself, we all know the feeling of a lawn sticking out like a soar thumb when everyone else's on the block is pristine.

Other factors include the law, in Montana it might be regarded as trespassing.

Trespassing in Montana is a pretty big deal, and penalties can result if it's reported and documented of a wrong doing.

One would ask themselves why someone would call the cops on someone try to do them a favor? Who knows. It would always be a courteous thing to just asking if they need a hand with the lawn work, they might just let you do it.
