Any suggestions other than what I have already used (Round-up, covering with black plastic in the Spring after leaves come out, digging down about one foot into the ground where feasible to remove even the tiniest root)? The Round-up worked temporarily, but the ogre came back in other spots. It is now invading my perennial beds. I do remove whatever I see. I have some woodland areas where I would love to grow some shade plants, but don't want to spend the money if they will be chocked out by the goutweed. In the back of the perennial beds where it is encroaching, I have cut out bottoms of large plastic bins (36 gal) and sunk them into the ground to protect what good plants I have in that area. But it is difficult to dig that deep in the woods because of roots.
