|How can I kill the creeping Bermuda grass that is in my rose garden without hurting my roses?|
|Bermudagrass makes an excellent turfgrass. However, its excellent ground-covering ability also makes it a pest in flower and vegetable beds. Bayer Advanced PowerForce Grass & Weed Killer is labeled for use in ornamental beds. Read the label to be sure it is safe to use around your roses.
If your flowerbed is next to a bermudagrass lawn, consider installing a six inch wide ?no grass? border of bark chips or brick pavers between the two areas. Spray or pull any grass that tries to invade the bed across the narrow strip.
