Virginia Creeper

Took over a large property with Virginia creeper throughout beds, did a cleanup but vine is still present in areas, what can I use to treat recurring vine?

I have used Round-up 41% directly on the stems as close to the ground as possible. Spraying over top of this type of material will not kill off for good, especially when applied with water in such a small concentration.

glyphosate - there is a product out there called aquaneat - which is a higher concentration of Gly I have found it is handy to have on hand for weeds that Quick Pro does not seem to control. However with that said I have used quick pro at 1.5 oz a gallon with a extra .5 oz of spreader stick per gallon on the Virginia creeper and had good results.

We will pull and or cut them off at the ground. when they grow back. we'll apply concentrate gly. by using a can and swab that pvc glue comes in. You can buy a new empty can/swab at irrigation supply stores. We find that suppression is sometime a better approach than eradication.

I believe your plan will have the best results,although more labor intensive the results should speak for themselfs.
