Flustered residents of a Florida neighbourhood are learning the hard way about the limitations of nudity laws there.
Several residents of Stuart, which touts itself as one of the best small towns in the United States, have complained and called police about a neighbour who has found that yard work and chores are less tedious when in the nude.
The problem: Said work is often in the man's front yard, in full view of neighbours and motorists, local media outlets have reported.
"I came out Sunday night to put the trash out, and I look over and he is bent over, winding up his hose, and I'm like that is my view of the neighbourhood," Melissa Ny said with a laugh this week as she talked with TV station WPBF 25.
Another resident had a more angry tone as he pointed out the home sits next to a school bus stop.
But there's not much neighbours can do about it aside from complaining to the media.
Florida law allows people to be nude on their own property as long as they aren't engaging in "vulgar, indecent, lewd, or lascivious" behaviour, and police reckon trimming hedges and washing a car is not considered any of those, the Orlando Sentinel newspaper reports.
