Neighbors can be competitive about the dumbest stuff . . . you mention that you haven’t had 15 minutes to pick some weeds, and they talk about how exhausting it’s been installing a new sauna in their backyard. A recent poll asked people what outdoor features they’d want . . . specifically to make their neighbors jealous.

You might be surprised at what makes us jealous, especially living in a city like Las Vegas! It could be anything from a simple fire pit to the smell of your own pizza oven making a late night snack in the backyard that sends your neighbor over the top!

So just look at your backyard, see what you have, then take a peek over that brick wall to see if your neighbor has anything in their backyard for you to be jealous of…just don’t get caught!

Below are 5 of the features that most people said made them jealous to find out their neighbors were enjoying in their backyard! SWNS give us the entire list and if you want to check it out, click HERE!
