    Hi, I have many maintenace jobs that have ground cover that has grass in it, but landed new job and groundcover loaded with grass. What can I get from Lesco that can be sprayed over top of groundcover or even junipers to eliminate the grass. Pulling is too time consuming plus it just comes back. Thanks

    I forgot the name of the product, but LESCO sells it. Use a fine mist (backpack sprayer) and a little spreader/sticker.

    fusiladeII for over the top grass. I think image is labled for over the top of juniper for nutgrass and others.

    I went to Lesco this afternoon with the same issue of grass growing in flower beds. I'm dealing with Torpedo grass. The Lesco representative recommended that I use fusilade - the product that (Olive 123) mentioned in his post.

    The other alternative recommended to me was to use Roundup. I was instructed to wear rubber gloves, get a sponge and soak it with Roundup, then wipe the blades of Torpedo grass with the sponge.

    I believe I am going to try the Roundup option first.
