    This is a long shot but I have an account with alot of grass growing in there ground cover located in flower-beds. Is there a post emergent that can be used that will kill out the grass and weeds but not hurt any of the ornamental or ground cover? I use a pre-emergent normally at my other accounts but just took this one on and trying not to tear up there ground cover. Any suggestions?

    Look for product with active ingredient fluazifop such as Ortho Grass B Gon Garden Grass Killer. Safe to use on perennials, annuals, shrubs. Probably not safe on ornamental grasses.

    Depends on the ground cover. If its vinca, your screwed. If it's procumens Ornamec will work fine but not for grasses I don't think.
