The easiest way is simply to cover the existing lawn with either weed barrier or plastic (I prefer weed barrier because it allows rainwater to penetrate down into the soil). Covering the existing grass with weed barrier and then gravel and not watering the area during the summer will kill out the grass - no chemicals required.

Best wishes with your project!
