How to avoid airborne weed seeds from neighbors weed eater?
My neighbors "mows" his weeds by using a weed-eater thereby sending weed seeds airborne into my yard. Fortunately, this is only in the portion of the yard between the street and the sidewalk - the public rightofway (his main yard is mulched). My side in the rightofway is mulched, and I am constantly pulling up weeds near our shared property boundary. Though a solid fence would work to keep the weed seeds from flying into my yard, I can't install such an permanent obstacle as it is the rightofway.
Does any one have suggestions on what I could to do to prevent airborne seeds from his weed eater? I am afraid a groundcover will not work - I think I would just be pulling weeds out of the groundcover. Any suggestions on a thick shrub? Do you think ferns would work? I currently have Boston and macho ferns in my front yard, but this mulched area might be too sunny....
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
