I wish there were an easy control method for these weeds but there really is none. Hand digging, roots and all, is the most efficient method of control, followed by a pre emergent herbicide application to keep the weed seeds it left behind from sprouting. An alternative is to spot treat with a vegetation killer such as Round Up. This product will also kill turfgrass or groundcovers - or any other plant it touches, so you'll need to apply with care. Good luck with your project!
