March in your Garden

Imagine how miffed I am, I just spent 3 days carefully cutting back my ivy (growing on my fences) and had a chat with the "gardener" next door at the retirement home, only for him to tell me that he has decided to use killer on the ivy on his side of the fence. I mentioned to him that as its interwoven between and over both sides that if he uses killer on his side wont it kill the ivy on my side not to mention if it seeps down into the soil that it may also seep into my border. He has assured me that it wont but I cant see how it wont affect my side. Plus I can't help thinking that hes doubling his work load by firstly having to apply the killer then wait for it to die off then by having to remove the dead ivy.
