Weeds from neighbors field.... HELP!!

Our property is bordered by 3 other acreages.... the neighbor in back mow their weeds frequently but not by our fence so they creep over & under. Our fence is wide spaced wire. My DH had a stroke & I had heart surgery so we are limited in physical work on the place. We live on our daughter's 3 acres & her kids help a lot with the gardening.

 I have thot of a reed type fence along the ares where the weeds are most prolific and the boys could help us with it. Might help with the skunks & deer who can see through & wander though andover the fence!! We do take advantage of their huge wild blackberry vine that we have allowed to grow over a cattle wire tunnel which allows the dog to run through & easy access to the wonderful fruit.

Any other ideas to keep that fence covered? vines... ? tall flowers? 

We do not use round up or other chemicals... do use Gardens Alive sprays as they are not toxic but not long lasting as round up is.

If you are trying to kill them to keep the weeds off the fence do a Google search for "organic weed kigrowing there are some that use hot water, vinaigrette and salt.

If you like berries, you could try raspberries--they can be very low maintenance, and will crowd out the weeds, but can become something of a weed themselves.
