I have a backyard that was mostly a wooded area up until 2 years ago. It now completely consists of a lawn and a decent sized mulch area on a hill with some ground plants that are supposed to eventually spread across the mulched area.
The problem is that this hilly area used to be infested with this incredibly fast growing incredibly large broad leaf weed that looks like a type of skunk cabbage.
Repeated attempts to pull these from the root have proven pointless as more little ones crop up where there weren't any before and left unheeded become enormous broad leaf plants in a matter of a few months. They are a real eye sore.
Is there an easy way to get rid of these permanently so they won't show up anymore? I tried pulling them when they are small but they are too weak to get the root out at that size. I have to wait until they are fully grown before I can pull them completely.
