I want to keep my neighbor's weeds from growing under my fence into my flowers and mulch. He doesn't take care of his yard and I constantly have to pull his weeds out from under my wooden fence. Is there anything I can put behind my fence or some idea how to stop this.

    Dig a small trench along your fence. Put down some plastic or landscape fabric and fill with gravel.

    Pour straight vinegar along bottom of fence line soaking the plants/weeds it will kill them or use Round-Up along fence line. Sink some edging down into ground along your side of fence some roots grow deep 6"s.

    I dug down a bit sprayed round up, nailed plastic to bottom of fence and laid in rocks or brick to hide plastic. Created a barrier.

    Try pouring boiling water on the weeds as they appear. Yes this will take time but will not harm the soil, is chemical free and kills the weeds roots and all. Also create a barrier along the fence line. You can use something as simple as garden edging, dig it into the ground and ensure it is hard against the fence at the top to stop light getting between the fence and the barrier.
