Q We have a small walk through the woods to our shop. The ground cover is solid poison oak. After two concentrated doses of Roundup, the poison oak is dying. I would like to replace the groundcover with something that would choke out the poison oak. Also want to add some liriope, rocks and existing irises along the pathway.
