My yard has a lot of Bermuda grass. How can I get rid of it besides just digging it out?

There are products that will kill grassy weeds (they contain the ingredients Sethoxydim or Fluazifop) but but are safe near your broad leaf flowering plants. One other option is to use a general purpose product containing glyphosate (Roundup is one brand), and to just wipe it on the foliage of the weeds. There are special wiper applicators for such uses. Just take care to not get it on your flowers or it will kill them too. Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
