Hello ecokid

not a massive problem really 

I would dig a mini trench alongside the fence and slot in plastic sheeting...even old compost bags, black insides showing....about 30 cm or so deep.....and a few centimetres against the fence.

in spring use glyphosate to spray......sorry anti glyphosates .......any weeds that continue to grow.

can you help

I think 5 over a 16 ' length is too many if you want them individually defined and not as a hedge

j c van tol is a good pollinator too but are there are any other hollies locally George?  

can you help
