My Neighbour used Cresol on his fence which sprayed onto my already patchy lawn..........will it cause anymore damage? its also on the paved area and ive tried scrubbing with soapy water but its not come off.....any tips please?



firstl go and have a word with your neighber nicley as that could be dangerous . yes it will kill all plants and the path should clean after a bit of weathering im sorry to say . maybe try a strong bleech salution on your path but wash it of with a hose to water it down.

On the lawn, use commercially available humates, or compost tea, to de-tox the chemicals, and make them more edible to soil bacteria. It may take a year or more to bring the soil back to life.
