One of my neighbors wanted to buy a strip of land from me, it was
going to cost them more than it was worth. They finally resorted to
trying to take it by adverse possession but that failed (they started
to mow it and stuff and told the judge that "her grandmother" (who
they inherited the house from) had gardened on it for years. Too bad
the "for years" ended when she died in the 60s.
You could ask the owner if he'd be willing to sell a strip if land.
I'd consult a surveyor along with your city planning people then get a
lawyer. Then my neighbors did their research it was going to cost
about 1k for the survey and transfers/plot updates plus any other fees
the city or lawyer would levy.

What is the lot size? If you want to go10 feet into his property, and
the total is 100 square feet, it sounds like you want a 10' by 10'
parcel. It sounds like one of several things is occurring here:
Either the lot size is 10 feet deep, your estimate on the total square
footage is off, you are looking to build a pen of some kind, or I am
missing something (quite possible)
I guess I don't have anything constructive to add to the discussion.
I am just trying to determine what you are looking to do. It looks
like some of the answers are based upon the idea of a fence running
the length of a property line. With many lots, it would only be 1
foot or less into the proerty line to equal 100 square feet.
