We had a small patch of various grasses these have now spread like you wouldn't beleive. Is the only way to get rid keep pulling it out or is there another way.



Been there, done that and no. If it is on its own then Roundup. If it is mixed in with other plants then it is almost impossible.

Hi John,
I'm afraid I agree with owdboggy, I planted grasses when it was all the rage, and now have to have a cull every year to get rid of unwanted seedlings. If you have flowering grasses, cut the seed heads before they " fluff up" and float all over the garden. You may have to dig the rest out as pulling up may leave roots behind that just grow again.

Happy gardening.
