Grass everywhere - Knowledgebase Question

What is the most efficient way to keep grasses at bay in my perennials. It is taking over my iris, creeping phlox and other perennial garden spaces and pulling only seems to spread it around, as well as being extremly labor intensive. Is there any kind of product that would kill only grass and leave everything else?

There is a product called Over The Top manufactured by Fertilome. It is safe to use near most perennials but there is an extensive list and you'll need to identify your plants and then make sure they are listed on the product label before using it in your flower beds. If they are listed, it's safe to use. Best wishes with your garden.
