Hello,
I have a long stretch of Griselina which is in the soil about 2 years from bare root planting. Some of them are up to 4 foot high while some are still around 2 foot. The problem is the grass around them is now starting to get high and I would like to kill the grass with an appropraite killer. However, I don't want to harm my hedging. Can anyone suggest something that will kill the grass but not harm the hedge - if such thing even exists?

Thanks

If you have a lawn, put the lawn cuttings deeply around the base of the griselinia.

That'll kill the grass and feed your hedge.

I have the exact same problem, cut all the grass around hedge right down and covered it with bark mulch (4/5 inchs), problem is grass is coming up through mulch.

Was thinking i might removing the mulch and put down some weed barrier then mulch back on top

Would be handier if there was some grass/weed killer i could water in, put worried about the gris hedge (only 1.5 - 2 foot tall)
