    I don’t get the bowling green lawn thing. I have the mower set to about
    3 1/2”. I hate annuals, all perennials and shrubs for me.

    As Remains of said, you will never get rid of it. The root system can go down 7 foot, even if you could dig that far down, if you miss one bit you have had it, plus again as he says, if your neighbour has it, you will get it. One of my allotments has it really bad, no one has ever got rid of it.

    I put some walkways at the boundary fence with the lazy sod next door, weed control fabric x3 layers and about an inch of stones. Makes it easier to pull them up but they have grown under it now and sometimes through the lawn. From memory they seem to grow most from May to July then not so bad. When we moved in 20 yrs ago we had it near some fir trees but I got rid of them and it went, which is why I am going to take the earlier advice given and brick my neighbour's neighbour's house and torch his fir tree.

    Reading the bumf from the company it kills everything. so the lawn, flowers and anything around it will be killed as well. Add to that the fact that it comes from neighbours etc it will be back. But it is the OP's decision.
