Need some advice on how to remove kikuyu from the lawn. My backyard has a
large lawn section where the kikuyu grass has taken over.
Its located on a terraced bed above the paved courtyard. Quite a tricky
location to get to actually as there are no steps leading to it - only big
rocks. A real bugger to carry the lawn mower there.
I thought of removing the kikuyu grass all together and mulching the whole
area - and placing drought resistant plants there.
But one worry is that during Summer - when the area gets hot and dry - the
wind will blow the debris down into the courtyard - where we hang our
clothes to dry after washing.
Whats the best way to remove them - considering its winter in Melbourne
I thought of spraying the area of roundup - then laying down newspaper -
followed by mulch - and later adding the plants.
Any ideas please?
