[gardeners] Weed & feed runoff

Last spring I planted three tree peonies, and last fall I moved them,
(because we were planning to move a fence, which would have put them on the
same side of it as the dogs.)

I put them on the edge of the yard, next to a neighbor who uses plenty of
weed & feed.  Just yesterday I was thinking about that, and noticing that
althought the peonies are about four feet from the property line, it's a
downhill run from his yard to ours.  I'm wondering if I should move them
again (poor things).  He uses a drop spreader and is careful about stopping
it at the property line, but I wonder about the runoff.
