    Have 10,000 SQ of planting beds that I need to get the broadleafs out of. The beds have juniper groundcover, hollies, vinca major, and some leriope in them. Any chemical good for this?

    The only thing I know of is the "Roundup glove". We put on an elbow length "rubber" glove, and then a cheap throw away jersey glove over it. Get the cotton glove wet with RoundUp, and then hand apply to weeds, being careful not to touch desired plants.

    It's a pain, and sounds silly, but for persistent vining weeds, it's the best thing I've found so far.
