We don't have morning glory in our lawn, but it is taking over our strawberries. Is there anything we can do? If we decide we'd rather get rid of the morning glory instead of saving the strawberries, will roundup get rid of it?

You can use roundup on the morning glory. A broadleaf herbicide would also kill the morning glory but right now it is too hot to use it safely. Either of these products will work better if you wait until the weather cools off in late September. At that time you could also safely spray a broadleaf herbicide. When you do spray, you might try teasing loose some of the morning glory vines and laying them out on a thick piece of newspaper to protect the berry plants and brush on the herbicide. That way you might be able to save your strawberries. Make sure you do not remove the newpaper from underneath the morning glory until the herbicide on the vines is completely dry. No matter which chemical you choose, you will probably need to treat the area for more than one year.

We currently have mostly Bermuda grass and are in the process of killing it off. We live in Hooper and our yard is approximately 1/2 acre with a few young trees along the borders (which of course will get bigger). The trees are Mulberries, Cottonwoods, Red Oaks, Tulip Trees and Austrian Pines. Suggestions for mixes we have heard are Sheep's Fescue and Bella Bluegrass. Also, is there a place in Utah where we can buy these grasses so we don't have to pay a large price for shipping?
