i have MASSIVE amounts of this in my yard that I've been pulling up by the wheelbarrow full, I was wondering Cani eventually put that in my gardens as mulch or use in compost? If so is there anything special I need to do to it before I put it in either?

I would definitely compost it first, Chenoa. At this time of year, any cutting you throw on the ground will root and grow a new plant but if you are composting correctly, the grass should get burned up enough to kill it, and make it useable as a good soil amendment.

In the winter you might get away with piling it on the flower beds.
