Japanese Mondo Trouble!

I have Japanese Mondo grass in my front yard. My neighbor's grass trimmings blew into my Mondo and now it has integrated and overtaken my Mondo. Any suggestions on how to treat this or is it too late?

Hi, Well I'm afraid you'll have to deal with this the hard way--pulling each bit of invasive grass out of your mondo clumps. By the way, grass clippings should not do this unless the grass was so tall that it had seed heads on it. Most turf grass will creep into other areas, but won't generally spread by grass clippings.
