Bermuda Grass Invading Monkey Grass

June 30, 2008 | By | Comments (0)

Q: 1. Do you know of ANY way to get (and keep) Bermuda grass out of monkey (mondo, whatever) grass?

A: 1. Try spot-treating the Bermuda with Ortho Grass-Be-Gon according to label directions. You can find it at any home and garden center. The chemical it contains kills only grasses, not broadleaf plants. I think it should be safe on monkey grass, but test it out on a small area first to make sure, as I couldn’t see any mention of liriope or mondo on the label. The only way to keep Bermuda from spreading into monkey grass is to not have them growing beside each other.

Happy hunting,
Grumpy
