Asked June 08, 2015, 6:13 PM EDT

I have bamboo spreading in my garden. It is 3 feet from my house foundation and almost under my pool liner and along the perimeter of my house. how do I eliminate it Bamboo without toxins? It is one foot from my above ground pool ( and I have been told bamboo can pierce a vinyl pool liner!) a foot from my house foundation. How do I keep it from destroying my pool and and my foundation?? Help, please!!!
