    You can't unless you cover fence with those ugly plastic things that looks like a basket weave.

    Try mowing in the opposite direction, with the mower shoot blowing grass away from the fence

    I have this problem too.
    You can kill the grass by mixing a bit of salt, a splash of dish soap and vinegar. Pour it along the fence line, and the grass will die. (don't splash it around, it kills everything.) Then pull the grass. You would have to repeat this occasionally.
    Alternatively, dig out enough space under the chain link, then insert a cedar board. I think they come about 4 inches wide. Then use a weed whacker to tidy up the fence line. The cedar will last a number of years. This is a more expensive solution, esp if you have a long fence.

    I would suggest putting down the black paper as I do so grass won't grow through.You can either plain a few flowers after you have added some dirt over the paper.I have also added figurines in front of the fences before.It does look good too. Good Luck Macee

    I've used landscape fabric and 2 to 3 inches of mulch but when my neighbor cuts their grass clippings come through the chain-link fence and the seed in the mulch . I can't put Weed killer there , because I have about a dozen Rhododendrum's and roses and hostas right in front of them . Help !
