Hi, Well the best way to cut down noise from neighboring yards is with a fence or hedge. Arborvitae, for example, makes a great, tall, narrow hedge that provides green color all year long. Also, if a fence or hedge isn't in your plans, you could try installing a fountain in your garden. The sound of running water may help overcome the sound of nearby air conditioning units.
