I call it the Stawp pronounced 'stop'. The local city decided that they needed to put sidewalks on my street [ which is not in the city limits, county said ok ]. When the sidewalks were finished the contractor hydroseeded and we ended up with some fast growing very tall , broad leaf 'grass' along with the desired grass. After a couple of weeks of cogitation this is what I came up with. I use a chip brush to spread a thin coat of Round Up on the PVC pipe and then roll over the tall grass. I did some test areas this evening and we will see how it works.

Very creative! Very similar to the weed wiper concept used in Agriculture. They also use foam to hold more herbicide.

Reminds me of the WeedEx bar I used decades ago, when I was allowed to use weed killer.

In places where herbicide is outlawed, you could always try zapping them with 15,000 volts!
