How do I kill "feather" grass in my yard?
Large Clumps of Pampas Grass
Wear heavy work gloves. Grasp several pampas grass stalks, bunching them together. Cut the stalks down to about 2 inches above the ground with a pair of gardening shears. Continue in this manner until you have cut all the grass down to a manageable size. Place the cut grass into a large garbage bag, secure closed and dispose of at a landfill.
Put on a pair of rubber gloves. Spray the cut stalks immediately with a ready-to-use herbicide containing glyphosate as the active ingredient.
Repeat the treatment seven days later. Monitor the location regularly, spraying newly sprouted pampas grass with the glyphosate herbicide.
