<p>Controlling horsetail (Equisetum) can be challenging. Some methods to consider include:</p>
<p>Consistent digging to remove as much of the root system as possible.<br />Applying a non-selective herbicide containing glyphosate directly to the horsetail foliage.<br />Smothering the area with landscape fabric or mulch to prevent regrowth.<br />Regularly mowing or cutting the horsetail to weaken its growth.<br />It's essential to combine multiple approaches and be persistent as horsetail can be stubborn to eliminate completely.</p>

Any ideas for getting rid of horsetail?

<p>Hi All, </p>
<p>One of the gardens I  work at has a major horsetail problem. Any ideas for getting rid of it please?</p>
<p>We've tried digging it out but the roots are really deep so you never really get all of them out, we've tried continuously hoeing the tops to try and weaken the roots but this results in the tops dividing and we've tried a biodegradable weedkiller from the Green Gardener which does kill the top growth but then regrows.</p>
<p>We're getting very grumpy with it so if anyone can suggest anything we'd be grateful.</p>
