Neighbours Windchime nuisance noise

Next doors got a wooden wind chime 2 weeks ago.
It's driving me nuts 24/7
I have been very strong so far and refrained from using scissors - though came close to it this morning...

I don't want there to be any upset as I only moved here last Nov so don't know them very well. Just a polite hello etc when we meet mowing front lawn etc.

Any suggestions on how to tackle windchime noise problem?

It might back-fire in that they like it so much they go out and buy a couple for themselves!!

I am reasonably content with it being over other side of garden. I can live with the quieter noise level although would be better still if not at all.
I certainly don't want to start a 'war of noisy chimes'. Live and let live, at least they haven't got a dog that barks all the time etc. I shall count my blessings :)

Unfortunately.
They did split up in the following months, but not a word was ever said to me about 'the note' - actually they never spoke to me again.

He still lives there, on his own.

Since then I have always been very careful not to say anything untoward to neighbours.

Thankfully I moved the following year.


Update on windchimes:
Not heard them for past few days, fingers crossed.

I walked past a house today and heard wind chimes. I thought of this thread and looked over aand saw the chimes hanging outside the back door which was at the side of the house (bungalow I think). the sound was quite loud and I think the neighbours on that side must hear them quite a lot. It does seem strange, I had always thought of them in a conservatory, or a place that is semi outside, not right next to the neighbour's door!

What is it that expends zero energy but is one of the hardest things to achieve?






Total silence...

As with most things like this the neighbour would probably not have thought about the noise for you when he purchased it. I remember something similar with my neighbour when I installed the small waterfall in my garden pond. He told me that he and his wife had been up all night trying to trace what they thought was a water leek in their house and all the time it was my waterfall. We laughed about it at the time but I did install a timer on the switch so it didn't operate during the night.
