So these are weeds growing in the small gap between our fence and neighbors fence close to Park Ridge! 😳🤦🏻‍♀️ Once removed, what can we do to prevent this? maybe adding mulch or rocks would help?

Which of the fence is not on the property line?

A simple and pretty cheap fix would be to just dig out an inch and a half to 2 inches of dirt out of there, lay landscape fabric and pour pea gravel over the area. Weeds solved.

Wack rack blow spray. Would have to spray once every 2 weeks to 1 month so dont come back. Make sure not raining 24-72 hours after spray or waste of time Whose property line is it? Shared?

The area is so narrow I’m afraid a weed wacker would possibly scratch our vinyl fence. And I guess at this point, it’s so out of control that regardless of property lines we will probably just have someone remove for us and then do something to help prevent like landscape fabric and stay on top of it with spray, etc.

My answer would be take down your part of the fence and gain some yard. But fabric and rocks would work also.

I might try some ground cover. Vinca or pachysandra would grow and not let weeds through. No maintenance

What I did and it's lasted for years, take some old carpet, I found it in the alley, roll it, cut it to the width, put it in there "upside" down, you can put a little mulch on it if it's too ugly, but works like a charm. Actually it's about 10-12 years ago I did it, and I'm just starting to get some things growing around the edges, maybe time I need to replace mine.

I'm confused. why two fences side by side? Wouldn't one fence serve to secure both sides? Was it just to have a matching fence all the way around? 🤔

If you didn't need to do that for utilities, why do that? Waste of space.

Mint. It will not allow anything else to grow. And it smells nice. And mojitos

Isn’t there a 3 foot ordinance? Most municipals have this in place for this reason.

Call the city and ask for a solution. This will only escalate. An animal will get trapped etc.

With mulch an rocks you will have weeds soon again. I did the stepping "stones" made from recycled rubber as a "floor' behind my shed to prevent weeds. rainwater goes through so no standing water. I plan to do this again at my new home behind our garage
