A North Canterbury man was opened his letterbox this week to find an anonymous letter telling him to mow his lawns.

When Dylan Bateup went to check the letterbox at his Rangiora home on Tuesday he discovered the note.

"To the occupier. As I walk along the footpath most days I notice that your outside lawn is not mowed," it said.

"Everyone along Victoria St has there outside mowed. A tidy lawn mowed reflets on the people living in the house. It would be nice to see if done regularly (sic)."

Bateup posted the letter to his Facebook page on Tuesday, commenting that people should just "mind their own business".
