chlorine is a biocide, so plants were killed by over-high free chlorine in the water.

Yup, cholrine kills off plants and lawn. I used to run the backwash water over the grass to give the garden a 'drink' but ended up with yellow, patchy lawn.

I put in a holding tank for backwash water and now I use the water for the garden after letting it sit for a few days.

If the water contains any sort of algaecide, that will also kill plants. Copper is especially harmful.
Has the neighbor's pool been green lately?
