Many types of grass, such as orchard and Bermuda grass, are rapid-growing and considered high-maintenance. Orchard is a cool-season grass that tends to grow in thick, reedy bunches. Bermuda is a lush grass used for sports turf such as football fields and golf courses. Eliminating unwanted grass from your lawn may be time-consuming, but it is a simple process that does not involve specialized gardening or landscaping skills. All you'll need is a little time and some old newspaper to do the job effectively.
Hand-pull areas of orchard and Bermuda grass you wish to eliminate. Place the grass in plastic trash bags or a compost bin.
Spread sheets of old newspaper over pulled patches of orchard and Bermuda grass.
Place bricks or heavy weights on top of the old newspaper and leave in place for two weeks.
Remove the bricks and old newspaper and spot-check the area for any new Bermuda and orchard grass growth. Hand-pull any new growth and dispose of into plastic trash bags or a compost bin.
