Kudzu overtaking my yard

I have Kudzu vine overtaking my yard. How do I get rid of this awful weed. It has covered up my plants and at the present time is covering up my porch more and more on a daily basis.

Well it's a tough plant to eradicate, but your best bet is to cut it off at the base of the vine and "paint" the freshly cut stump with brush killing herbicide. Pull the rest of the vine down after it's been severed from it's roots. You can buy brush killer at most home stores or independent garden centers.
