What can I use to kill grass & weeds in myrtle without killing it?
Naomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CA on Feb 09, 2018Smother it with newspaper, cardboard or landscape fabric. Then place mulch or rocks on top. You will still get weeds, but they will be shallow rooted and easy to pluck.Helpful Reply
