killing bermuda grass

Zone Mid Alabama | lakemartin62 added on February 26, 2012 | Answered

I have the running Bermuda (??) grass in my flower beds. I have dug, sprayed and pulled, but it keeps coming back. There are some places I can't spray because of flower bulbs. Can you tell me something I can use that won't hurt my bulbs?

Unfortunately, there's little else you can do other than hand pulling. You could try pouring boiling water on the areas where the Bermuda grass is growing, but this will kill whatever it comes into contact with, so you'll have to take care not to get the water on your bulb plants.
