What's an effective way to get rid of liriope? My entire front yard
used to be liriope, but dug it all up maybe 5 yrs ago. Planted shade grass which lasted 2 seasons. Then plowed up the yard again and now it's tree mulch with azaleas, hostas, ferns, hellebores and a couple more things. Liriope still comes up and I dig it up from time to time. BUT on the other side of the driveway in the front yard, I still have a jungle of liriope and have decided to eliminate all of it. I've started digging it up and giving it away on Freecycle, but realize digging is going to be more than I want to handle. Seems I read -- maybe on Hometalk -- recently that spraying it a couple of times within a 2-wk period with Roundup or something similar would do the job. Will it? Surely there's a way to eliminate it without digging. And besides, digging won't do unless every underground morsel of it is dug up -- nearly impossible!!!
