Bermuda grass weed

Asked September 21, 2015, 3:57 PM EDT

Our lawn and flower beds are covered in bermuda grass weed. For three years or more, we have pulled, overturned, spread mulch on beds...and within a week, it is back with a vengeance. How can I get rid of this. We are on well so nervous about chemicals.

Hand pulling of bermudagrass in flower beds will work as long the complete plant , including the rhizome is removed. There is an over the top herbicide available to homeowners for controlling bermudagrass in landscape plantings containing fusilade. Be sure to read the label for a listing of plants it can be applied over.If bermuda grass starts invading your lawn,the approach then is to apply Round Up in mid August followedd by overseeding in early September.
