Experts and BHG readers answer.
wild grape vine
Thanks for writing. If it's an old, established grape, your best bet will be to dig it out of the ground.
You can also try spraying it with a brushkiller, but if it's old and established, it'll probably sprout back again and need to be sprayed again a few times.
If you simply want to keep it under control, you can find its base and cut it back to the ground once or twice a year.
