11th Season – Broken record…

My Texas Kudzu (Virgina Creeper) and false garlic are flourishing again. The "garlic" is in bloom right now and has spread even further into the grassy areas of the lawn. The smell is quite piquant when mowed, and while pleasant (for me) it is unsightly. Poison Ivy is alive and well. Any and all attempts (1) at banishment have been met with sneers :? Has anyone found any product which can send these “pests” packing?

(1)
a) Strong (20%) Vinegar + Orange Oil (2 oz) + dish soap (@ 1 tsp) in 32 oz spray bottle. I’ve also tested the above solution replacing the Orange Oil with a biodegradable degreaser.
b) heavy mulching with cedar mulch and lava rock over several layers of corrugated cardboard
c) heavy application of dry molasses, spray with liquid molasses
d) and of course 11 years worth of pulling/digging
