To Hell with the Neighbors, by Charles Boorman

The movement caught the man’s eye as he mowed the lawn. When he knelt down for a closer look, he spotted another kobold near the wall. This side of the garden got most of the sun, which was probably why they were there. The sheet of corrugated black plastic lying in the ditch also provided warmth and shelter from predators that are often left with just a wriggling tail in their claws. The man decided to let the grass grow tall–to hell with the neighbors. For the rest of his life he claimed that Leprechauns lived in his garden.
