But is there another way of getting rid of the morning glory weed? Yes there is!
For the morning glory weed to flourish, it has to have an unrestricted area to grow and spread. This is where the morning glory weed's weakness lies- it despises crowd.
Therefore, if you find the morning glory weed creeping along a bald patch of soil, fill that area up with plants that are suited for the location.If the area is somewhere in the lawn, cover it with landscaping grass of your choice. You have to literally be on top of the competition. Once the morning glory weed is overcrowded, it loses its capacity to outgrow every plant that gets in its way.
Mulching a bald area will work the same way as filling it in with ornamental plants. Mulch will restrict the sunlight from shining on exposed weed seeds and deprive it of sunshine as well as moisture. Pretty soon, it will rot and die.
