Need a weed application for weeds within ornamental grass (mondo grass/ monkey grass) in a bed. The main weed is clover.

I've used the 41% Roundup Ultra at 1 oz. per gallon of water and have treated over the top of evergreen giant liriope, and juniper with no burn what so ever. I always use my property as a test before I try things like this out on my customers property.

I take it there isn't anything then...otherwise I will be better off doing it by hand.

Actually if you try and remove the weed by hand from an ornamental grass there is little chance that you will pull the root free, and it will grow back. If you wet a sponge with roundup and then grab the weed, with the sponge , pulling the sponge along the leaf surface it will be much more effective than simply trying to yank the weed out by hand. If you want a quicker knockdown add scythe to the mix.
Good Luck,
Jim L
