Dicamba Drift

A farmer actually won a lawsuit over herbicide damage.  \o/

All herbicides will drift, but not all are equally damaging when they do.  Modern ones will damage or kill mature trees, let alone flowers and vegetables.  When I was little, a 10' strip around the edge was enough to protect everything else in the yard.  Now things right next to the house get killed sometimes.
