How to cover a chainlink fence to block lawn chemical overspray from my neighbor's yard.

I want to cover my side of a chainlink fence to prevent my neighbor's lawncare company from spreading and spraying chemicals into my organic vegetable garden which is just 18 inches from the fence. Burlap is the only thing I can think of ~ any other suggestions?

Hi, Well I supposed you could use a low border of plywood and paint it to look nice. You would not need a lot of height. I think an 18 inch tall barrier would be fine. If the lawn care company is applying chemicals correctly you should not get any drift into your yard, but if you want to be safe, then your idea of a temporary barrier of burlap clipped to the fence should help.
