Are you sure you want total kill of these flower beds?
The only way is to extract existing shrubbery and trees. Then the use of a non-selective herbicide with no soil residual action will suffice.

If your asking about a selective that won't harm the ornamentals, the targeted grass and weed types need to be known as well as the surrounding plants. For cleaning out thick bermuda in flower beds, I recommend cash and spanish
