I have put down weed control fabric but it finds its way into my flower beds, I have sprayed grass off products and nothing works. I am going crazy, HELP!

    Because it's so tough and persistent, most professionals and homeowners use an herbicide (generally glyphosate) to kill it. They spray, strip off the dying sod, irrigate to generate growth of any surviving rhizomes, and then repeat the process at least once (one treatment rarely kills a Bermuda lawn).

    Pull it out by the roots...also add a heavy topping of mulch.

    edge about 6" around your bed so it never gets in.

    It takes more than pulling Bermuda grass up by the roots to get rid of it. Bermuda grass roots have been found as deep as 16' underground. Shoshana's advice is right on.

    Sprinkle baking soda at edge of your flower bed---nothing (good plant or weed) will grow there.
