How can I kill bermuda grass - Knowledgebase Question

Question by ccreswel

I have a fairly new house and the contractor planted grass (fescue maybe?)which I like. The problem is that bermuda grass is taking over in areas where the other grass didn't thrive. I want to get rid of the bermuda grass. It creeps into my flower beds and looks ugly in the winter.What will kill it and not kill the other grass??

If hand digging is not an option, you might try the selective herbicide, Ornamec. This is considered an 'Over the Top' application, because it can be sprayed over a variety of shrubs and grasses, only killing the bermudagrass. Apply Ornamec as directed on the label. For best results, do this in the early spring or fall.
