    As a homeowner you want the simplest, safest and easiest solution. You don't want collateral damage from some of the harsher chemicals suggested here. Therefore I suggest or second ProDeuce by Nufarm which is a generic of Roundup Extended Control because of cost. But even Roundup Extended Control would be a reasonable expense. AND you can finds this at Tractor Supply, Wally World and Home Cheapo.

    good luck

    i agree with ric. i have a privacy fence around my back yard and instead of using a trimmer around this fence which would be alot i spray it with roundup and barricade along with gallery have to do this 4-5 times a year. works great. he could buy the prodeuce and its already mixed i think its the simplest for the guy to use. with those other ground clear products he might get more then he bargined for with movement of the chemical...

    It's not that uncommon out here.

    How well do you know the grower? If you chat with him you may be able to get on his side of the fence to spray toward yours. Or does he spray at his fence? If so, could he do it up to your chain link for you? That is if your state rules allow it. You do run the risk of him going in a bit further from time to time in that scenario. I see both those situations going on out here all the time. At least with neighbors that get along it does.

    Scythe is just a foliage burn down product. It's great mixed with Round-Up since Scythe does the burn down within a few days and Round-up goes to the root which takes a week or more.
