Asian Jasmine Grass Removal?

What's the best way to remove all this ground cover grass?
It's about 1-2ft thick and 25ft wife and 30ft in length. Also it's in 2 different sections.

Looks like plain old digging is the only way. Either with a shovel/hoe or heavy equipment if you have or rent. I have a house with that stuff climbing the walls and in the ground. I hate it. You have to go down pretty deep to get the roots.

And it's a lot of it too. I thought digging it up was the solution. I also thought about spraying it first which will make it easier to deal with. And once it dies use the weed eater.

Spraying that much may need too much product. Maybe mow it down first, remove as much as you can then keep it sprayed and weedeated as it grows back till it's gone.

it comes up real easy with a spade shovel...kinda like a carpet...cut the roots...right along the ground and just roll it back, it comes up easier when you have the large matt to use for leverage-

What is the plan after is the real question. Is it gonna be soded? Made into beds? I would spray the scrap out of it and do the job 2 weeks later. Then you can string trim it flush and till. Won't be fun but I would get it dead first.

The other option is to make it look right spray it with a selective herbicide to kill the grass growing in it. Then trim it with a string trimmer and treat with pgr after it starts growing in a couple weeks.. Atrimmic works well on that. Will fill in nice but not grow like mad for about 10 to 12 weeks. Then trim again and treat and you are good for the season.

I was thinking of using a pgr on a home I have with this stuff climbing the walls. The people like it like that.

Never used a pgr. Any advice how to use it?
