killing pacysandra

Is there anything on the market that will kill pacysandra better than Round up? I have a large area and have applied Round up three times now.

A pair of gloves and a good tug worked for me. I had an entire section in the front of my house that the previous owners planted. It is very easy to pull up. If your soil is mostly clay, like it is here, wait until the day after a rain so the soil is softer. Start pulling. Pull up as much of the runners as you can. I just did this a few months ago and only once in a while do I see a branch pop up where I missed a piece. Plus, pulling it is free, easy, and better for the environment than sprays.

I could send my dog....My pachasandra circles are now quarter moon shaped. His whizzing works over night.

Agreed,, takes consistant digging , pulling, looking after it until it's eradicated. You could try Ortho vegetation killer if you don't care what else gets killed with it.
