Out of desperation I grudgingly gave in to using RoundUp (glyophosphate) to help control my invasive weeds problem about two years ago. I am dealing with a large area and this seemed the only realistic way to go. I am wondering whether others do or don't use herbicides and why. I am also curious as to techniques people have developed. I should also mention that even though my resistance to using herbicide has been broken to the extent of using RoundUp (which is supposed to be safe, etc.) I have still had limited opportunities to use them since I never seem to have the right weather conditions when I get around to it or the native cover is too thick sometimes to use it.
