Being a good neighbor
Respect and friendliness are key ingredients to being a good neighbor, regardless of where you live. However, since rural residents tend to be a bit more isolated than their urban counterparts, building a sense of community often takes extra effort. When you're planning landscaping or remodeling projects that are near lot lines, take the time to discuss your plans and see if your neighbor has any concerns that should be addressed. If you have pets, remember that many areas have leash laws that still apply, even in rural areas. Let your dog enjoy the benefits of rural living, but make sure to keep him out of your neighbor's garden!
