Hello. I have bamboo in my backyard and I don't know how it got there. It's been there for years, way before I bought the house. My neighbor
also has bamboo in her yard and it's also been there for years, way before she bought the house. She's now wanting to remove her bamboo and do landscape work and wants me to build a root barrier to keep my current bamboo from encroaching on her property. The day she asked me to do this, I literally put an offer in to buy a new house and began putting up my property for sale, out of pure coincidence!
For all we know, it's possible the bamboo in my yard originally got there from my neighbor's previous owners who may have put the bamboo in her yard and it spread to my yard. We don't know for certain, but we think it probably started in my yard, but no way to prove anything or know for certain.
What is the right thing to do legally?
I'm offering my neighbor to pay for the root barrier material and to rent the machine to do the job on her property, b/c my properly already has landscape work that I've paid for that will mess that up, where as her property has not yet been landscaped.
Your thoughts on what to do if you were me?
Let me know if you have any further questions.
