The Q&A Archives: Protecting shrubs

Question: Hi, I planted a row of euonymus shrubs and noticed that the neighbors sprinklers are hitting them and the leaves are turning yellow. Is there a protecting spray I can purchase for the leaves or something I can do besides covering them every night? Thank you!

Answer: There's really nothing you can spray on your shrubs to protect them from water so you may need to plant something in front of them to reroute the water or place a short fence along the property line. Or, perhaps your neighbor can adjust their sprinklers so plants on your property don't get the benefit of their overspray. Wish I had more suggestions.
