Giant landscaping rocks right on that line will stop that shit. Or a fence. Rocks are cheaper

Second the fence. Lots of duplexes have it.

They work like a charm!!! I have a row of them on my property line which are i movable without a machine. If a couple of guys can move one, I’m not gonna mess with those guys! And they’ll wreck any car that hits them

There's the legend of "sage hill rock" from Calgary, It's great. But yeah, Put some random thing there that will inconvenience them if they try to drive over that spot.

If cost is a problem, railroad ties are found free pretty easily in my area. A lot of people remove them from landscaping close to their home to not encourage termites. They were used a lot in some of the older neighborhoods.

Otherwise, I’d also recommend large flower pots, rocks, large bushes, or fencing like everyone else. I don’t know how plants would go, if he’s a problem neighbor, he might just plow over unprotected flower beds.

just get some rebar, hammer it in and tie rope between posts - a temporary option to at least remind them of the property line

Personally I would not have an issue with a neighbor using my driveway in this way as long as they're good neighbors otherwise. But you have a right to restrict access to your property as you see fit and seek appropriate legal remedy's especially once you have notified your neighbors that they are indeed trespassing.

The guy is a scrapper and comes and goes 10x or more per day bringing back scrap and cans. If he had an offsite job and was more respectful (didn’t blow leaves into my yard, didn’t hit on my mom when she was here) I would be a lot more willing to let him use it.

How about some railroad ties or landscaping timbers may be two or three high driven down into the ground with large nails or spikes. Like a little 10 inch high wall that you can throw up quickly. Hell, even line it with cement blocks all the way down the property line.

Rebar through drilled holes and into the ground.

Cinder blocks are inexpensive. You could place them along your side spaced apart 12 inches or so at first. If that doesn’t work you can place them touching and or add another layer on top where you put the second layer where it’s centered over the bottom two…if that makes sense. I even planted and or put pots with plants on the flat part and put pots in the holes of some of the cinderblocks. At least that way it kind a looks aesthetically pleasing on purpose. And if you don’t have any plants the cinderblocks will send a message, most people I would hope would not drive over cinderblocks, unless they have a big truck.

Well, why is it still bare and accessible to him? I know a fence is expensive, I don’t have one either, but go find some big ass rocks out in the woods, put flower pots there, literally anything. Whatever you put there, if he runs it over or touches it in any way, you’ve got him for destruction of property.

Do your stone, leave a strip along the property line. Plant some small tidy bushes, or just flowers/herbs. If they do drive over it they would more clearly be causing damage to the property and consequences would be easier to uphold. Better yet do the garden strip first and train them not to use the space before you re-pave with stone.

Park an old car on that side, or cinder blocks, scrap metal. Or you could do a pallet fence, it’s cheaper than putting up a regular fence. Chain link fence too. But honestly I would want a solid fence for privacy and to prevent awkward mean glares after this lol

Or- easy. I can’t tell if your driveway is gravel or cement, but I would dig a hole and put a no trespassing sign facing their house lol. If your driveway is cement you can get a bucket, and put your sign in it with cement or dirt and place it out there

Personally I’d use regular ole chain link fence, get a nice gate and call it a day.

There is a type of temporary fencing. Tall 5 foot stakes that got a foot or so into the ground, then a roll of fencing that clips onto the stakes. Can’t tell if it’s all pavement or any dirt at all there. It will only work with dirt. Guessing it will cost you $150 or so to do that.

If you can afford a fence right now why not just put the post down along the line.

Then why you are ready to put a fence in. Hey look post are there.

Edit - why am I being down voted for asking a question? Geeze a person can't clarify anything around this place.

Should you press charges......just wondering what would you put charges on for? Trespass?

Yep, trespassing. He already got a warning from police AFTER being talked to calmly by me.
