I know that stuff is invasive! Have you tried mulching it with a mulching mower? I would start out on the highest setting then mow it over again and again lowering the mower each time. If you do this in the heat of the summer, I would think the Asian jasmine would die. Toss the clippings in the compost pile. You do not want to protect it! Be sure and mulch about 3-4"over the bare soil with shredded cedar or hardwood.

I don't know if this would help, but I've seen folks around here do it. Place an ad in the paper offering free asian jasmine if folks would just come and dig it up to take with them. I would come and dig it up, but I think I'm a little further away.
