Ask them. It is far easier to avoid a conflict to begin with than to
try to resolve one after you caused a problem. So they say no, at
least you didn't cause a fued. If it is 'no' then you proceed with
other solutions mutually agreed upon. Get the authorities involved
only if you can't resolve it in a friendly way.
Check zoning, check with city, etc...? Why. Likely to cause problems
and if the shed isn't bothering you why do that?
I have a neighbor directly behind me that put up her own wood fence to
block her view my wood fence. Over the years mine has weathered grey. She
is a priss to wants it to look brand new. None of the pickets are broken
on mine. She just is fussy.
My parents had a great lot, with empty wooded lots on both sides. The
neighbor directly in back had a junky looking metal shed, painted dark
green. My mom didn't want to see or be seen in the Florida room, didn't
like the shed, and solved the problem with landscaping. Shrubs and
trees blocked direct line of sight to each back neighbor, the critters
wandered through from the empty lots, and it was a great place to enjoy
surroundings. Fox, racoons, possum, burrowing owls, gopher tortoise,
occasional scorpion and snake. Neighbors were kind and watched out for
each other but kept respectful distance. Even the racoons were polite :o)
My old neighbor complained I hdnt cleaned up my yard:( Of course it was
still winter and had snowed that weekend.
She pointed out her yard was clean, of course she had hired workers:(
I didnt cut my rear yard till the 4th of july:)
She NEVER complained about anything again.
I would plant a nice row of evergreens or something. Gives you privacy,
lessens noise and green is more acctractive then shed fence or other
man made junk.
