    Mix a surfactant (i.e. sticker) in with the round up. I would also use a stronger concentrate of the glyphosate (round-up) than normal.

    See how that works for ya..

    That's what I do. Seems to at least keep it at bay anyway.

    if its in the turf, try cool power and if your temps/turf will handle it add a surfactant. (nothing over 80 degrees or 70 with the surfactant)

    Nah Teeca, It's in the beds and natural areas, so I can be a little more agressive.

    Does anyone know where to find a skid sprayer 100 gal at an inexpensive price?

    Get Prosecutor Quick-Acting at JDL: it's glyphosphate with diquat dibromide. 6oz. per gallon should do the trick. Add 1/4 tsp. of dish soap per gallon for a cheap surfactant.
