round-up at base of boo

Hey bamboo pro's I have a lot of weeds at the base of my boo, would it harm the boo if i sprayed roundup at the base of the culms to kill the weeds.

Bamboo seems pretty resistant to Roundup, but I always hate to see someone adding more man-made chemicals to the soil. Any reason hand weeding won't work? If it were me, I'd weed it and lay down a couple of inches of mulch and/or some weed barrier to solve the problem permanently.
