If you need to kill grass growing close to ornamental plants, you can apply a selective herbicide that targets only grasses without harming your garden plants. These herbicides will kill most annual grasses like crabgrass and foxtails, as well as perennial grasses like quackgrass.

Here is a tip. If you use herbicide, protect your ornamental plants by holding a piece of cardboard against the grass. It will soak up errant spray. Don't recycle this cardboard; it should go in the trash.
