    Hey guys. Don't worry.. im not going to do this. Im going to have the guy put down the chemical. I just need to know a name for it.. The picture is what it looked like before i mowed it.. and after. Its about an inch in diameter and basically filled with water.. (50% of it) Does anyone know if he could use a basic weed and feed on that? He's just looking into killing that stuff.. no making an actual lawn out of it. So.. heres the pics.. let me know what you think..

    Roundup will do the job, but it'll be pretty expensive.

    I am thinking that Crossbow is the ticket.
    Takes out the broadleafs and woody growth and leaves the grass.
    Check out the label sounds like just what you need.

    If you have what I think you have, Japanese Knotweed, it is nearly impossible to get rid of it.

    I think the leaves are too small for Japanese Knotweed, at least not the specie we have in the Northwest. If it turns out to be in that family, Roundup seems to do the best choice, albeit repeated apps. will be needed. Most susceptible when it is in bloom. Neal
