How do you kill vine weeds?

I have vine weeds in my yard and I want to get rid of them once and for all.


Answer by  basil (311)

Vine weeds can be especially challenging to remove from your yard once established. If you don't mind using chemicals, Round-Up is a tried and true method. For a more natural approach, pull out all of the vines and then dig the soil and remove ALL of the plant roots.

Find where the vine connects to the ground. Remove at least 1 foot of vine. Do this for all root connections. Allow vine to dry over a couple days. If you pull weeds off of brick work or wood work before they dry you risk damage to the house.

First, try to pull as many of the weeds as possible, making sure you get not just the visible portions of the weeds, but their roots as well. It would also be a good idea to spray the vine weeds with an appropriate broadleaf weed killer. Your local gardening store can provide you information as to which weedkiller would work.

You dig and cut of the roots or you use Roundup by applying it directy. Unfortunately, if you use Roundup it will take almost a year for them to die.

The easiest and probaby most effective way to do so is with chemical agents. A store bought product like Round Up is made for this and is effective.

Be prepared to work. Get down and dirty and pull the vines by the roots. Let this area go for the winter. Spring check the area. Spray with Round Up.

I had vine weeds and found that using poison ivy spray killed them and they have not returned. It does not harm other plants or flowers as long as you do not spray on them directly.

I got rid of weeds and ivy by spraying them with a product called Season Long. They died within 3 weeks and have not come back--it's been three months.
