    Just wondering if any of you know how to kill grass and weeds growing in monkey grass or bushes besides pulling it out by hand. Im just a mower guy and dont do any chemicals and its for my own property so liscense is not an issue here. Went to my local nursery and they recommended a product called OVER the TOP have any of you used this?

    The most important thing you should know is exactly what weed you are trying to remove. Then you can use the info below and choose the right product. Always read the label to ensure you are purchasing the right herbicide.

    This is most likely what you have tried:

    Fluazifop (Fusilade): (+)-2-[4-[[5-(trifluoromethyl)-2-pyridinyl]oxy]phenoxy] propanoic acid

    Sold as:
    * Fertilome Over-The-Top Weed and Grass Killer
    * Ortho Grass-B-Gon Grass Killer

    Fusilade will suppress grassy type weeds, including Bermuda, in your ornamentals.

    Your other choice is Image. I know this is sold at Home Depot.

    Summer Weeds Controlled by Image
    Field Sandspur Perennial Ryegrass (over-seeded) Globe Sedge
    Green Kyllinga Rice Flatsedge Purple Nutsedge Yellow Nutsedge

    Image will aid in the control of and reduce competition from:
    Dollarweed Tall Fescue Violets
    Crabgrass Annual Sedge Virginia Buttonweed

    Winter Weeds Controlled by Image

    Applications should be timed to follow the first frost. Image may be applied prior to or soon after emergence of the weeds listed below, with the exception of wild onion and wild garlic, which must be emerged at application time for control.

    Black Medic Buttercup
    Common Chickweed Mouseear Chickweed Cutleaf Evening Primrose
    Carolina Geranium Dovetail Geranium Hairy Bittercress
    Henbit Knawel Lawn Burweed
    Parsley-piert Purple Deadnettle Red Sorrel
    White Clover Wild Garlic Wild Onion

    I have a similar prob and was wondering if the same solution would apply. A huge steep bank of cotoneaster horizontalis with grass (different types of weedy grass) growing through it. ty I hope the mentioned products are available in Canada, so often they arent.
