A landlord must give a 48-hour notice prior to entering the property for a repair or inspection.  This notice applies to the yard, if it is included in the lease.  According to the Landlord Tenant Act (RCW 59.18.150), a landlord has the right to enter a rental, provided that the landlord doesn’t, “abuse the right of access or use it to harass the tenant.” The notice to enter should contain the exact time and date of entry, or “specify a period of time in which the entry will occur, in which case the notice must specify the earliest and latest possible times of entry.” The tenant may say no to a proposed date and time, if doing so is reasonable.  The landlord may enter without notice in case of an emergency or abandonment.
