I had our 95 acres surveyed and t posts put in every 150 ft between corners; then filed at the courthouse. It's my land, I bought it; nothing territorial about it. I even had one guy move a storage shed he had built on my land behind his house.We're good on the right. That neighbor is a naked gardener like me. We know the liine +/- 10 feet. That's the easement for maintenance anyway.
Neighbor to the left is a pissant territorial rat. Had stakes put in about every 75 to 100 ft down the line. Neighbor on the other side removed them! I planted shrubs on my side of the stakes. Asked him whether he wanted me to mow for the Jap stilt grass down the back hill. "No, don't want your tractor on my land!" So, the wife started lining up logs along the line to keep my tractor off his precious land.
He cut our phone line in 2 places while planting trees. Phone company came out to run a new line. He stood on his land and declared HE did not have an easement. We looked it up. It's 10 ft +/- for utility and drainage easement state wide and likely country wide. Phone company later came out and figure out how to run a new line just on our property.
