|My parents have a heavily wooded back yard. How can I get rid of all the grass in the back yard, cost effectively.Thanks|
The most cost effective way to get rid of St. Austine grass is to mow it very close and then rototill it 1-2 inches deep a few times during the summer about 2 weeks apart. This will pretty much reduce it to just a few sprigs, especially if it doesn't rain. If the grass is bermuda, zoysia or a native grass you may need to spray with a herbicide product containing glyphosate. Read the label carefully and don't apply more that is needed or apply right before a rain. It works best when the grass is actively growing, not stressed. A repeat application a few weeks later may be needed.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
