    Cut them down and dig down two feet. Lay in several layers of newspaper. Make sure the newspaper overlaps and there is no dirt showing. Water down. Add several more layers and water. Fill with new dirt. The paper works much like cement and will retard new growth. Put landscape fabric down and mulch or rocks. Wait a year before planting. If any sprouts come up you can get them and not have to worry about trying to weed around new plants. If it's a big area, hire a bull dozer to come in and rip them out and dig down.

  • Cut it down and dig out what you can. Then repeatedly drown in agricultural strength vinegar. Will take a bit of time, but it will work.

    cut off growth the minute you see it start back up; the root system is relentless. LONG process and it will probably show up in your neighbors yard!
