    I have a commerical property managment co.
    wanting me to cut all the grass thats about waste high... around a sorta storage units turned into businesss' place its about 4 rows of these metal buildings about 400ft long each ... i mean if you round up it ... is it gone for good? I think it will take about 2-3 hrs to get things back in order the first time ... then about 1hr every 3 weeks

    First check your state laws...you probably wouldn't be able to do this legally. If you can't, just sub it out...you're not out anything.
    Now, to answer your question, if you use glyphosate (Roundup) on it, yes, it will kill it all off. However, it will NOT be done. You will have new stuff growing up within a few weeks. The way to keep it controlled is with some sort of pre-emergent. Something like Oryzalin works well for this.
