Re: If you have a corner property


When my parents had theirs; every so often teenagers would. It wasn’t a common and constant issue, but it did happen occasionally.

Our first house was a corner lot that sat vacant for a few year. When we moved in people would cut across our property a lot but then eventually they realized someone was living there and it stopped. It was usually younger kids though.

No not really at least I never noticed. Both me and my parents have corner house and i don’t ever remember it being an issue there.

Now garbage on the other hand would be more often. While it’s not a huge issue I tend to find garbage by our houses.

My daughter does when she comes back from school. She runs diagonal across their grass.

Yes and we have sidewalks. I actually had to yell at some young kids once because we just had fertilizer sprayed (and there were signs too) and they just walked right across.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone cross our lawn in the 10+ years we’ve lived here.

I haven't seen anyone cut across it. If they do maybe they'll get what they deserve and step in a giant deer turd...

Re: If you have a corner property

My mom has one and people do it occasionally.

She vents about it to me and I think she overreacts but I agree that it’s not appropriate unless you know the people and have reason to believe it’s OK

Thanks for the replies. I saw a kid with his father walking and when they got to the corner, the father stayed in the sidewalk while the kid cut across the grass. I doing it odd that the dad didn’t say anything to the kid. I wasn’t overly bothered but I found it strange that he let him walk across someone’s yard. If it was a kid I knew, I don’t think I’d really care but I never saw these people before and just found it strange.

Never. But I also live on a quiet residential corner in a neighborhood. I don't border a busier street.

Kids cutting the corner yes, but I never really cared. It’s not like they are wearing a trail in my lawn or right up to the house.

Re: If you have a corner property

I don’t have a corner property but to me that’s so odd. I was told to respect other people’s property including their lawn. Not to step on it or let your dogs go to the bathroom on it. Especially if you don’t know the owners and how picky they are about their lawns.

I would have told my son something if I was walking with him and he did that.

As kids there was a house in the corner and we always cut through and yes it wore a dirt trail but they never said anything. I think because they rented it out so it wasn’t like the owners were there everyday to care.

I have a corner property, and never had a problem til recently. The school bus stop is on our corner (always has been), and the current group of kids are constantly on our lawn.

I just moved from a corner property. I did love it because we had no neighbors on the one side, people did walk across all the time. I did have someone drive across my lawn at like 11pm one night and my cesspool was out front and closer to the street which made me really nervous. We now have a mid block location and I still do miss my corner

Re: If you have a corner property

I grew up on a corner house and lived behind an elementary school.

EVERYONE cut across.

We were also the bus stop corner. So EVERYONE waited on out porch when it rained. Kids waited on that porch years later after we graduated. The kids winded up running all over the place. During the fall they would throw acorns at each other.

My mom called the school district and asked to change it. All what she needed was one kid to slip while they were chasing each other.

We also would have cars cut across the line. My dad made this metal strip that he welded nails to and painted green and would lay it on the corner. My dad was a savage.

We have a corner -- and people cut across big time -- we have wood fence (horizontal pieces of wood) and entrances at the front of the house with our driveway and then a cut out on the very back of the side of our house -- we have seen many cut through and it annoys me! (I even saw a set of runners do it -- why bother running if you're cutting!). It annoys me greatly actually. The worst however is that our neighbor keeps her yard like crap (the town recently came and threw stuff off...it had gotten that bad) -- the woman keeps junk and also collects the recyclable cans in our neighborhood (they are in the backyard and piled high in her car!) -- anyway, our video captured her going going out to collect cans etc....cutting through our yard in both directions and on the way back cutting in so she could throw the cans over the fence on the side of the house where her house is and continue on looking (at like 2:30 a.m.) -- this REALLY angered me but my husband doesnt want to say anything more than we've said lightly in the past about her yard (and the mosuitoes etc. that it attracts) -- ANYWAY, people cut through and I think it is MASSIVELY rude. :)

It was never an issue when I had a corner house. And just to add - I would never walk across someone's lawn to cut the corner - would never dawn on me to do so. Maybe I did occasionally when I was a kid (don't really remember), but definitely not as an adult.
