What do you do if you accidentally spray grass killer on your lawn?
If you unknowingly damaged your lawn with an herbicide like Roundup, you’ll have to do some physical renovation to the lawn. You’ll want to go ahead and remove the dead areas of lawn before more weeds move in to take its place. Then re-sod the patches or re-seed the areas, depending on the type of grass in your lawn.
Will grass grow back after being sprayed with Roundup?

What’s a safe alternative to Roundup?
Vinegar. Spraying a little white vinegar onto the leaves of weeds can keep them under control as well.

How do I stop Neighbours growing through my fence?
Buy yourself some slates and push them into the ground along the fence line. That should help a bit. Also move some of your plants away from the fence so you can apply weedkiller more easily. I agree with the physical barrier idea – it’s really the only way to stop the weeds.

Follow Watering Schedule Excessive heat and dry conditions can also cause the grass to become dormant, but that can lead to the grass dying if the proper steps aren’t taken. Watering will help dormant grass become green again, while dead grass will remain brown.
