How to rid of grass....but not plants....
My wife are not gardeners, so excuse our ignorance in this area....but we need a little bit of help.
We recently had some fill dirt/top soil added to the side of our house, along with two window wells to help with water drainange and runoff.
At first we decided to just throw some grass seed on the dirt and let it grow in as it was before.
But instead we have now decided to add some plants and shrubbery to this area. The only problem is some of the grass has started to germinate. We planted some stuff today and I tried to rake out any seeds still on top.
Is there any product or trick to removing/killing the grass, but not harming the plants we just put in?
Should I put mulch on the area now or wait to kill the grass? Will mulching "suffocate" the grass and prevent further germination?
Thanks for the help.
I attached a picture for a little reference.
