Working at home and impacted by loud yard tool noise?

With so many people working from home as a result of COVID-19, nearby excessive use of gas-powered yard tools (weed whackers, hedge trimmers, lawnmowers, chainsaws, and especially leaf blowers) has become an issue, negatively impacting at-home workers.

“Excessive” in this context is defined as “Daily or almost daily use for many consecutive hours or repeatedly intermittent daily or almost daily use.” This does NOT include normal property maintenance using such tools, i.e. once or twice monthly, thereabouts.

If you are working from home, live in a residentially-zoned neighborhood or on an ag lot of two acres or less and your work is being severely impacted by nearby excessive daily or near-daily loud noise from gas-powered yard tools, I want to hear your story. Please send me a message so we can connect.
