Better/alternate answer to previous question re. neighbors and pollinator garden

In answer to the question:

Preparing for a pollinator yard

You suggested leaving a border of grass between the pollinator garden and the neighbors' property line. I agree with talking to the neighbor first. But there's a better solution than leaving a border of grass that needs to be mowed. I would say, plant a border of Penn Sedge, thick enough that your wildflower roots won't spread to the neighbor's yard. That way you don't have to mow, and it will look neat and tidy.
