Good fences make for good neighbors. Boo for pesticide drift. Trugreen’s always sticking fliers in our door… um, no thanks. Here’s hoping your plants escaped unscathed!

Bummer! Really too bad the neighbors couldn’t warn you so you could have covered your veggies from drift. sigh….

One of the reasons herbicide doesn’t work is because there is no lawn to release – people spray and find they’ve got nothing but dirt left because their entire lawn was crab grass

I called the company and they said we’ll know if it has an effect in the next couple days. They said the weed spray would definitely kill all my vegetables…which must be what they used, because that lawn is nothing but weeds. Boo! That seems really inconsiderate.

You can probably find out what the lawn was treated with if you call the company. If there was drift during application, you’d likely already see damage to your garden, depending on what product they used. Turfgrass management is big business and also a big waste of time and resources, in my opinion.
