Thanks for writing. I can't think of any products that are safe to use around children/pets that will kill the grass and not harm hour cactus. Anytime you want to use a product to kill a living thing such as grass you're generally running into unsafe products. (Even organic products may not be safe -- natural and safe are VERY different terms.)
