Best way to get rid of ferns ?

8 years ago

The previous owner of our home planted ferns around clusters of pine trees in the back yard. The primary reason was to not have to mow in between the trees. I would like to remove the ferns and plant sod instead. I have tried hoeing out the ferns but it is labor intensive. What would be the easiest way to get rid of the ferns so that I can plant sod ? My current plan is to use round up in the spring when the ferns are active and then wait 2 or 3 weeks, to plant Sod. If you have any suggestions they would be appreciated. Thanks
