A man in Austria, is shocked by a court ruling that took away his lawn and handed it over to a neighbor who cut the grass.

48-year-old Matthaus L of Sallingberg, said that when his neighbor asked him if he can cut the grass, he allowed him, thinking it was just a friendly gesture.

Matthaus was very happy that his neighbor volunteered to cut his grass and gave him bottles of wine to show his appreciation.

At some point, Matthaus decided to put up a fence around his property, but his friendly neighbor filed a lawsuit, claiming that the lawn was his.

He was shocked by the lawsuit, and even more disturbed by the court’s ruling.

The judge ordered the homeowner to remove the fence and hand over the lawn to the neighbor since he had cut the grass for many years.
