How do I kill weeds without killing the weeds I want to keep?

15 years ago

My butterfly garden is literally matted in Bermuda grass and other grasses, none of which I want. They're all invasive, not native. My butterfly garden is mostly weeds though. Native weeds like milkweed, etc.

I combed out my garden the best that I could and I tore off a lot of the long strands of Bermuda grass but I couldn't get what was under the soil, in deep under ground runners. I couldn't pull it all up either, the roots rip.

Is there a product that specifically kills grasses but nothing else? I also have the same problem with shrubs and other flower beds.
