How can i kill off lilys in my garden.

United Kingdom Gb

I wish to lay a new lawn in an area which at the moment contains a large number of Lilly bulbs.
I have attempted to dig them out and have to an extent succeded in doing so.
I do not believe i will be able to locate them all and so do i have an alternative way of stopping them reshooting.
One other thing does the shoot of the lily thats been seperated from the corms re grow if left in the ground.



I would just mow the lawn. Once you start that they will be finished!

It's only the corms that produce growth, so top, green stems won't root.
