What can I safely spray to kill weeds in and around Junipers?

We had Junipers planted on the slopes in our backyard. I am constantly pulling weeds. However, there are some very invasive weeds that I have been unable to pull out by the roots.

    You can lay down landscaping cloth/weed cloth around the plants and top with gravel or bark.

  • You can use Round-up Herbicide in a wick applicator available at most home & garden centers. Google wick application of herbicides to better understand how the process works. Us a pre-emergent herbicide like Preen or SnapShot to help prevent weed seed germination. Follow label instructions for proper use.
