    I have a client that has some beds lining the fenceline. The neighbors St. Augustine is growing into the beds from underneath the wood privacy fence. I thought to just pust some sheet metal along the fence 6" to 12" deep to block it, but I wanted your opinions on solutions as well.

    thanks in advance

    I also usually use roundup, edging will work on St. Augustine though. It only has to be about 3" deep, St. Augustine doesnt go very deep. Bermuda on the other hand, is sent from the devil.
