If it is plantain, you can use the herbicide 2,4D which is a broadleaf weed killer. It won't harm grass, but it may harm other plants so use it carefully. Or, you can dig the plants out and then use the edge of a shovel to cut straight down along the property line to keep the plants from creeping over onto your side of the property.

Best wishes with your project!
