Getting rid of grasses?!

Posted by watergal z6/7 MD (My Page) on

I have a clump of zebra grass, about 2 feet in diameter, that I want to remove. I have read that digging out the roots is a horrible job, so I've tried killing it off with RoundUp. Three applications later, it's still growing!

Any advice?

If you use a strong enough solution of Roundup, in warm weather, it'll eventually kill the grass. I'm talking about the brush and ivy strength Roundup, not the weed killer.

give a couple of local kids some picks and shovels and a few bucks and tell them to have at it. Stay clear of chemicals!
