Japanese Stilt Grass and other invasives #261992

Asked July 14, 2015, 7:03 PM EDT

We are being overrun by stilt grass, mile a minute and some kind of violet. Is there any way to stop their constant progress into our yard? I do not use chemicals at this time because we are 1700 ft from Loch Raven Resivior

Please see the link below from Weeds Gone Wild for more information and control of stiltgrass  http://www.nps.gov/Plants/alien/fact/mivi1.htm  and mile a minute. http://www.nps.gov/Plants/alien/fact/pepe1.htm    Least toxic methods of control include handpulling, mowing, and digging (wild violets).  http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/wild-violet                                                                      mh
