Smothering Out Mint

Anonymous added on June 18, 2016 | Answered

Is it possible to smother out mint in a large area by sodding over the entire area with St. Augustine grass? I am trying to get rid of mint in an area of about 400 S.F. I have used my weed eater to cut it at the ground. Can I now sod over the entire area with St Augustine grass and smother out the roots of the mint? I have pulled a lot of the root runners up but it seems impossible to pull them all. Any suggestions other than Roundup?
