Neighbors battling city over overgrown yard


ATLANTA -- We've all seen overgrown yards -- weeds out of control, grass too high -- but few have seen anything like a certain house in northwest Atlanta.

Neighbors can no longer see the house at 169 Hyacinth Avenue NW. Along the street is a tangled mess of weeds, bushes and trees -- a yard you could get lost in, with wild nature typically only seen in a deep forest.

"I tried to cut it down when I cut my grass, but it got so high, I can't cut through it now," neighbor Linda Burton said,

With the weeds towering over her head, Burton has plenty to say about the yard.

"Snakes!" she added. "And my dog might get bit by one. I might get bit by one."

Among all the green sits a home that, by Burton's estimation, has been vacant for more than a decade.
