    Equisetum? Usually growing in bark chips in planting beds? Victor is right. I have heard it is resistant to Roundup. I suggest Confront or Trimec. Add sticker. Cover the good plants with plastic, if necessary. Many deep creeping roots, repeat often for good kill.

    I misread your post Turbo. I thought you were asking about Horseweed (a.k.a Marestail). I've dealt with a lot of that on the lawns of new customers and have never had trouble controlling it. While I've never had to deal with it, I can see Horsetail is a different animal all together.
