Weed Eaters And Vinyl Fences
In our hot and humid New Orleans climate, grass and weeds grow constantly and you will need to mow your lawn at least once a week in the summer months. Along with mowing your lawn, comes edging to make sure your landscaping stays in shape. Be careful when edging around your vinyl fence. If you hit the bottom of your fence with the weed eater, you may accidentally chip it.
What You Should Know To Protect Your Vinyl Fence
A string trimmer has the potential of destroying your vinyl fence. Your fence should be at least 3 inches above the ground. In that case, you be able to trim the area carefully without worrying that the weed trimmer damages it. In general, try to avoid using those kind of trimmers around vinyl fences. Applying Roundup to the area under your fence might be a better option. There are also organic alternatives. For instance, 20% vinegar should kill off a nice neat & tidy 12″ or 18″ wide strip of the lawn underneath your fence. Another option, use some good old shears to do the posts. Just remember to use a cordless shear for those small jobs.
