That certainly wouldn't work for me Jennifer. The thistles, docks and nettles set seed throughout my borders which are full of treasures. No option other than to hand weed.
I keep on top of weeds on my side of the fence, I'm sure Lou does too. It's just bl***y annoying having to spend time dealing with what is effectively somebody else's litter plus having to look at it as well.
My neighbour has had so many run-ins with everybody owning property adjoining or affected by hers. She has been taken to task by the PC, invoiced for work which had to be carried out by the LA, been taken to court for compensation after some of her horses got out and trampled a garden and boycotted by all the local farmers (who often do bits of extra work for locals such as hedge cutting and ditch clearing for a very small fee) because she just doesn't pay her bills. She nearly bankrupted a small local fencing company after not settling an invoice for £20,000 worth of fencing for nearly a year.
She has lots of land and over 20 horses. She has decent cars and horse boxes. She has just had new outbuildings erected. She is not short of money. She is just a pain in the rear end!!
Phew - sorry for that little rant - but I feel much better for getting that off my chest
