While you can try spot treating it with things like boiling water, vinegar, or Grass-B-Gon, it will also kill your ground cover if it touches it. One way to avoid this is by using some type of shield to cover the plants you wish to keep. Since this is not an easy task, you may need to resort to hand pulling the grass instead.
