Weeds that sprout from underneath a chain-link fence are a nuisance when those weeds spread throughout the openings in the fence. Simply removing the visible portions of the vegetation found around the fence is not enough, as the weeds are guaranteed to eventually return. A liquid weedkiller containing harsh chemicals is not necessary for removing the unwanted vegetation. Instead, use a common household liquid to kill weeds and prevent them from returning.
Put on the gardening gloves.
Clip away leaves, shrubs and other unwanted portions of vegetation growing throughout the chain-link fence, using the manual garden shears. Place the pieces of vegetation inside a lawn or garbage bag.
Clip away weeds at the bottom of the fence with the garden shears or weed trimmer. Eliminate all visible weeds and place them inside the garbage bag.
Fill the medium-sized spray bottle with straight white vinegar.
Saturate the ground underneath the chain link wherever weeds are growing with liberal doses of vinegar. The acidity in the vinegar will kill the weeds and unwanted vegetation.
Repeat step 5 if it rains 24 to 48 hours after applying the vinegar, or whenever you notice weeds sprouting at the bottom of the fence.
