Roundup is also toxic for some of us people.
Your neighbor should reimburse you to replace what he killed (and
the cost of having it planted), I know that won't make it OK -
but maybe he'll think before he sprays again. What he did was
just criminal in my book - for plants to croak within an hour he
must have gone through gallons. My sympathies!
We have a neighbor that pulled all the honeysuckle off of our
fence when he moved in (I know it's a weed, but I liked it and it
had grown there for years while their lot was empty.) and killed
what he could on both sides... I walked outside one day to hear
the fence pickets breaking as he pulled.... then had the gall to
tell me the fence needed to be replaced. [I just thought, too
bad...not going to happen... ]
