Overgrown Garden

Anonymous added on April 2, 2011 | Answered

I purchased a house with extensive gardens that have been neglected for two years. It's my first house and first garden, so I am truly a novice. I got advice from an experienced gardener in the fall to cut back everything and see what grows in the spring, then pull out what seems to be weeds. Now I have two flower beds that have more grass growing than plants. Is there a way to address the weeds/grass other than pulling each out by hand?

You can try Round-up with a spray shield to direct the spray. This site will explain how to make a spray shield:
