I use my tiller head on the end of my string trimmer. go slow and you can pop up and tear up the existing fabric. The only pain is having to randomly stop and clean the tiller head occasionally.

Over all I don't cuss when using that method. Any other method usually has a expletive associated with it.

The spikes on this kind of tool, are great for tearing into the fabric and yanking it out. Sold at Lowes under $11 bucks.
