I'm running a brothel out of my apartment, that's OK right?

You have an unrealistic view of your "right" to do business from home. If you lived in a home in suburbia you would have even more noise over any particular day and even less of a leg to stand on when telling people that yard maintenance is interfering with your business. Every neighbor would mow or have a lawn service in at a different time and day. At least what you have is predictable. Perhaps you need to work from a place designed for quiet, like an office building. If you have such a great need to sound professional then maybe you need to be professional and work in a real office now.

If I worked from a house it would be less of an issue because the noise would be further away and therefore much quieter. The noise I'm referring to is within about 25 feet of my window. Beyond that it's quiet enough not to be an issue.

Very judgmental and unhelpful...

Incorrect. Most standard residential city lots are 100x50. With a large percentage 75x45. That means given the placement of your home on that lot you are going to be within 25 ft of a neighbor's yard no matter where the office in your home is located. Also you'll have to put up with barking dogs, Three Trash truck pickups on your trash day in most California cities now, Garbage, recyclables and green waste. No to mention the all day 7:00am to dark hours of your neighbors and their landscape maintenance people cleaning their yards the day before pickup.

Oh yeah did mention barking dogs all day. Almost no city has noise ordinances for that from 6:00am to 10:00pm. Thank those neighbors that kick their dogs outside because they go to a regular business office to work. Ruff Ruff Bark Bark.

As stated above regarding the lot size here is what you get from me.

Monday: trash and then yard waste pick up. Both big trucks.
Tuesday: Recycling pick up
Wednesday: Piano lessons (all day)
Thursday: More all day Piano lessons
Friday: Most likely smelling my grill (charcoal)
Saturday: Yard work
Sunday: Yard work

If Saturday and Sunday are going to rain then my yard work gets moved to 7am on a weekday or 8pm depending on how tired I am.
All through the week random chance for me grilling or doing additional yard work. Not to mention me washing and cleaning my and my wifes car which normally involved the radio being played at a good volume.

All that happening about 25-30 ft from your window.

OP: I just noticed you live in Chino Hills.

Time to be thankful that you live in a place that's kept up. The Chino Hills are one big brush fire waiting to happen. (I know them well.) When some bozo sets off a firework this summer and everything from the Chino Hills Parkway to the Pomona Freeway goes up in flames and the fire department says, "We saved your complex because the brush was cleared" you might just re-think how much you hate living someplace that has gardeners.

Just a thought.

Have you thought of during the times they are making noise, you could put ear plugs in your ears. I know it is an annoying sound, but truly the gardners landscapers, don't mean to be annoying, we have our neighbor do our lawn for our home, he does everything at one time, he has a business, yes it gets noisy, but the noise cannot be helped. That is the price to pay for having my nice green velvetly lawn. Ear plugs may help. During the spring summer months, sometimes gardners have to come twice because of the weather condition, and effect on the lawn.

OP, I work from home as well and I understand how you feel. I learned to close the windows and apologize to the people on the phone with me when the noise starts. As long they start working at normal work hours I am fine, an hour or so a day goes by very fast. Hope you figure out how to deal with it. As most posters said, no matter where you go there will be some kind of noise.

labor and industries has rules requiering companies not to disturb the piece! excessive noise is debilitating and is incapacitating. Causes moraine diabelling headaches. Migraine headaches prevent people from working. not being able to work causes people to be depressed and disabled.

Victims unable to earn wages become depressed.Depression causes debilitating migraine headaches leaving victim unable to earn wages causing debilitating depression.

This interesting thread has one good feature: the slanging match did not start for real until several posters had posted their replies. Usually in CD threads the bashing starts within the first 5 posts. This is the good thing about anonymity; you can say any nasty thing you like and no one can punch you in the face.

I blame most of the worst yard noise on blowers; I can stand most of the rest of it.
