You can also try cutting it all back and covering it with thick black plastic to choke it out

Any ideas how to do this successfully?? Im worried about shocking the plant and bugs–

Bring your container-grown papyrus plant indoors for the winter if temperatures dip below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. If the papyrus gets full sun, it continues to grow through winter. The ideal indoor temperature ranges between 40 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit. A garage, shed or unheated room may provide the necessary temperature.

Supply artificial light if you can't give an indoor papyrus plant enough sun during the winter. Without enough light, papyrus stalks flop over.

Nut Sedge or Nut Grass Eradication

I garden organically and have an invasion of nut grass in three of my gardens and a lawn area. I have dug out the soil and sifted it but a few days later it’s back worse. How do I get rid of this?

Unfortunately, the only recommended method for controlling this grass is what you are already doing.

The only other thing I would suggest is that you lay a black tarp over the area for a few months. Then when everything is dead under, you can uncover, and re-seed with the grass of your choice.
