I would welcome ideas on how to eliminate kudzu from my yard. For years I have dug up roots and trimmed vines, but it is a never-ending chore. Unfortunately my neighbors also are infected and I have only been able to keep the kudzu somewhat controlled. Is there anything that will kill this stuff without damage to the environment?

Howard Garrett recommends getting a goat to eat it. :)
Maybe try 10% vinegar on it when the weather gets hot...?

I have read that goats are fond of kudzu, however that is not too practical for city dwellers. I will try the vinegar.
