Neighbor planting in my yard

Blair Nelsen
last month

My neighbor has a pool, with tall wild grass for privacy. The grass is inside his fence, which is on (and in some spots over) our property line. To get more space inside his pool enclosure, he wants to plant the grass outside the fence, where it would be in my yard. What are the downsides to allowing him to do so? We have a large yard, so it won't detract from our space, but I had a neighbor at a previous home who planted hundreds--not exaggerating-of plants along the property line and then disputed the line. I ultimately had to pay to have the property surveyed.
