Weds, weeds, and more weeds, oh my!

Asked April 12, 2020, 11:43 PM EDT

We live in Dana Point California and have a yard full of weeds. We had someone pull all weeds in the front and side yard (steepish hillside) last fall as we were getting ready to landscape. Unfortunately this didn't happen, but we are getting ready to landscape soon. The weeds grew back and then some, fairly large area. They have thick stalks and some are a 2-3 feet tall. What's the best way to get rid of the weeds? Pull out or spray? If spray, with what? Is there a way to keep them from coming back?

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, there is no ‘one solution fights all’ for weed control, since there are so many species and varieties of “weeds.” We suggest you contact your county Extension office for specific help: Good luck!
