In her video, TikTok user Ashby (@yourfriendashby) filmed herself as she added more items to her outdoor decoration collection.

The TikToker placed a large blue metal flower among the plants in front of her porch.

Her other fake flowers can be seen dotted throughout the flowerbeds.

Ashby joked about the judgemental looks she received from her neighbors over the lawn art.

She used a viral audio clip from influencer and podcaster Theo Von to illustrate her point.

“You know I’m not judging you but I’m just saying everybody else is going to,” Theo said.

“My neighbor talking to me about my yard art,” Ashby wrote in the video.

She can be seen looking up from her garden as she pretended to react to her neighbors.

“I love turkey yard art. My neighbors, not so much,” she captioned the clip.

Based on Ashby’s use of the tacky hashtag it appears as though her caption contained a typo with the use of the word turkey.

Another TikToker shared how their privacy fence caused tension with their neighbors.

A Twitter user revealed the action they took after their neighbor’s kids kept throwing garbage into their yard.

A Reddit user explained what happened when his neighbors’ screwed his gate shut.
