I'm trying to get rid of snow on the mountain (gouts weed, bishops weed) in my yard, but it's very invasive. Don't want to use Round Up. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Calvert County Maryland groundcovers bishops weed

Aegopodium, Bishops Weed can be invasive and is best reserved for a bed that can be devoted exclusively to it. If you do not want to use chemical control, then you will have to handpull or smother it. Depending on where located you can mow or cut back, cover with cardboard or 10-12 sheets of newspaper, and top with three inches of an organic mulch.
