how to kill morning glory?

we bought a house about 6 months ago and just recently found on the whole side of the house morning glory is growing along the bottom and apparently it takes over everything and i dont like it... do you know of any way to kill it or do i just need to dig it all out?

  • I went to home depot and bought the weed killer that hooks to your hose, I think it was ortho brand. we had the same thing happen, bought a house and half the lawn was morning glory come spring. it is a pain to get rid of and will come back the following year if you dont get rid of it completely. I only have two places it is trying to come back. Your best bet is to head to a garden center and talk to them about different steps to take to kill it off.

  • I would try weed killer on it. If you DO dig it up, you are going to need to get ALL the roots or you risk it growing back.

  • Round up or Ortho weed killer might but have you tried a cheap powder laundry soap?
