Q.grass invading prickly pear cactus

Zone 40076 | Nancy Higdon added on May 27, 2016 | Answered

I have a patch of prickly pear cactus which I really like. The problem is the grass grows up with it and you can’t see thy cactus. Is there something that would kill the grass, but not harm the cactus or could I gently sprinkle rocks in until the rocks kill out the grass? Perhaps you know another solution.
