I believe I have horsetail taking over my new garden. Started this garden last fall. Location is near our pond. I raked the soil this spring and “horsetail” popped up everywhere. What can I do?

Unfortunately it is very difficult to get rid. Spraying can take years because it only kills the new growing and then it begins growing again. I found this info that might be something to try.
