I have a weed that keeps coming back and back and back. It looks like a tall type of sleeping grass. Anyone know of a good way to keep it away from the yard?

Mahalo!

Oh, that nasty stuff... with the seeds under the fronds?

Mostly I hand pick it. In the cracks in the stones, or garden, round up. It keeps coming back though.

Try cutting it down to ground level and then using...

boiling water
bleach
vinegar
salt
or
diesel fuel

Gorra go along with you Susie with the diesel fuel but nothing will grow on that ground for years.

True, Barry...plus it's illegal in most places. But sometimes....

(the trick is to cut down the weed to ground level and drop whatever poison only onto the cut stem, reapply as needed)
