property line and weeds
Our entire property line runs parallel to our "neighbors", and we both have them semi-mulched. Our part is ~6 feet wide and has several trees and bushes for a little privacy, but it's not complete. We do not go over there much and do not maintain near the property line frequently, so they are complaining about the weeds that have grown on our side. We kind of like the added privacy the weeds give, but we live in a maintained neighborhood.
We would just control the weeds with mulch, but it would cost a fortune every few years. We were thinking of putting a groundcover near the property line (and adding more privacy plants). Does anyone have any suggestions for a groundcover that will not quickly spread onto their "sacred" land? Or, are there any other suggestions for a low, low maintenance way to shut them up? The uglier and smellier plants, the better. We won't be looking at them.
