Black builder’s plastic is great for killing grass and weeds. It doesn’t let the light through, being black it gets really hot underneath and it’s cheap and can cover very large areas. After the grass is killed off the carpet, cardboard and whatever could go down on the ground to prevent germination of grasses and broadleaf weed seeds.
Got any clumping bamboo that survives frost – with the same type of roots, it should compete with grass. Mint might work in a damp area or in summer a circling pumpkin – the only thing I know that encroaches on my lawn! I’d suggest sweet potato, but again the frost.
Try re-reading the Woodrow chapter on edge guilds, it might have a clue. Good luck – grasses are my worst weeds. Can you mow a circle on the lowest setting around the mandala?
