Getting on with your neighbours takes common sense. Think of how you get along with friends and family, then apply those principles with your neighbours. Creating good neighbours has many benefits. The best reason to get along is to enjoy friendship at some level.
Keep your yard and house or apartment patio neat. No one likes a yard full of weeds, a house needing paint or buildings in disrepair. Think property value.
Control your pets. Have a fence or leash for a dog. When the pet barks every time a neighbor goes outside, bring the dog in.
Get to know your neighbours in a friendly manner. This means talking and sharing something about yourself.
Build trust by being a good neighbour. Set the standard by offering help with projects or sharing a cookout.
Invite the neighbours inside your house or apartment. Even a short visit builds bonds.
Give your neighbours a head's up when you plan to build something on your property.
Lower the volume on radios, parties and arguments with other family members, especially at night.
