Q.Kill grass in creeping thyme lawn….

Zone Medical Lake, WA 99022 | Jenny Pierson added on April 5, 2018 | Answered

We purchased a house that has a thyme lawn – problem is it was neglected for some time and there is quite a bit of grass working it’s way in. What can I use to kill the grass – but not the thyme? I’m hoping there is something otherwise I’ll have to dig up quite a bit of the yard. 🙁

Unfortunately, you will have to dig up quite a bit of the yard. This will be the best way to get them out without harming the thyme. Then you will need to make sure that any that come up gets pulled after as well.

That is what I was afraid of. :( No fun! I know it's expensive to get a thyme lawn started and was hoping for a better way to salvage it. Thank you for answering.
