Removing spreading bamboo in yard

Asked April 24, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

We are purchasing a home in Greensburg, PA. The current owners landscaping is covered in a couple different spieces of bamboo, which is spreading throughout the yard and probably neighbors yards. I attached a picture of a small section of the home showing the bamboo. How do we control or remove and keep from spreading into our grass area?
