Have you talked to him about this? If you have, and he continues to stack stuff up so it damages your property, talk to a lawyer about writing him a letter. Usually that's all it takes. Take pictures, keep records. I can't imagine anyone being this rude.

Ask him to stop, if he doesn't you can file complaint with the police for property damage.

Suing a neighbor is usually a bad idea, but having your lawyer write a "nice" letter would be a good start, depending on how crazy this guy is. Sometimes you just can't reason with people.

they, the bad neighbors, are probably crazy from what I have seen. I will probably have to see an attorney as "bad neighbor"s piling up debris and 3 ft high wood stumps from the outside of my pool fencing against my fence, on his unfenced property from the street, creates a hazard for my pool by a child being able to climb on his debris into my pool yard; [dont be alarmed I have kept a second fence up, due to this idiot who is unhappy the city said i could fence to my own property line. but i cannot use all of my land because of the two fences...i will take him to small claims though as I can't close my gate and he was out tossing rocks on JUly 4th aginst my fence, now I can't close the gate...

is there any law anybody knows about wrecking somebodies fence and the bad neighbors actions?????

If he is damaging your property and actually going on to your property (which is wht happens when the fence bows inward) he is liable for trespass. As you said, he is also creating a potential hazardous condition. There might also be a local zoning law prohibiting this sort of piling stuff up, but to find that out you need to talk to the local zoning office. You have a cause of action in equity to ask for a court order to remove this hazardous trespass.
