invasives from hell
the fence at the back of our small yard is covered in invasives... deeply with porcelainberry, also a rosa multiflora and a tree of heaven. there is also something that appears later in the summer that looks like mile a minute or hedge bindweed.
last spring we cleaned the entire fence of growing vines (and im talking at least 5 years worth, probably a lot lot more) and swept the earth on our side of the property for all the viney roots.
we were good for a little while but eventually the weeds just took over again, namely from the other side of the fence that has a private social club's lawn on it.
i hate to use herbicides, especially since we live so near the coast, but i don't know what to do. help?
