The Q&A Archives: How can I kill bermuda grass

Question: I have a fairly new house and the contractor planted grass (fescue maybe?)which I like. The problem is that bermuda grass is taking over in areas where the other grass didn't thrive. I want to get rid of the bermuda grass. It creeps into my flower beds and looks ugly in the winter.What will kill it and not kill the other grass??

Answer: If hand digging is not an option, you might try the selective herbicide, Ornamec. This is considered an 'Over the Top' application, because it can be sprayed over a variety of shrubs and grasses, only killing the bermudagrass. Apply Ornamec as directed on the label. For best results, do this in the early spring or fall.
