    Its the triclopyr that is doing it. Not really a good idea on warm season turf. Fine on fescue. Confront was safe on high cut bermuda and zoysia because it applied low rates of amine triclopyr. I know Turflon ester or Garlon 4 will kill bermuda.

    Liriope spicata is tolerant to ornamec. You will only kill grasses that grow within it, and the liriope will be unharmed.

    Had a call yesterday about removal of monkey grass from flower beds. They wanted it dug out a foot down they said it would take 4 hours. Can you get it done this week? How much do you charge a hour? I'm booked for 2 weeks!!! Find someone else. How does rounded up and bed matting work for this stuff?? Like others have said I know it's a constant maintence issue.
