Your best bet would be to hand pull as much as you can and then add landscape fabric or moist newspaper topped with mulch to keep weed growth to a minimum.

However, you could also try sprinkling corn meal in the area, which has a chemical in it that acts as a pre-emergent on plant seeds preventing them from germinating. Sprinkling corn meal will not harm plants but will keep weeds from growing.

Another option (though not one I enjoy recommending) is the use of conventional weed killers, like Roundup. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/weeds/conventional-weed-killers.htm

Alternatively, you can try these less invasive organic approaches: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/homemade-pet-friendly-weed-killer.htm
