  1. Gather your materials

    Grab your gardening gloves, a small rake, a bucket, and a weed killer like Roundup Weed & Grass Killer.

  2. Pull the vines

    Put on your gardening gloves to protect your hands. Find the bases of the vines that you want to remove. Grasp the base of the plants firmly, then twist and pull. Place the pulled vines into a bucket or basket.

  3. Spray with weed killer

    Spray the area where you pulled the vines liberally with weed killer. This kills the roots of the plants and prevents them from regrowing even after they have been pulled. Be careful to only spray the roots and plants that you want to kill.

  4. Repeat the process

    Repeat this process every year when morning glories sprout from seed and grow again. According to the Scotts Company, it can take up to two years to remove morning glories from your garden and flower beds completely.

    How do you make cute garden signs?

    Make cute garden signs by sanding down old wood boards, adding a base layer of paint and painting on some sayings or pictures. Break overly long boards by placing them on a cement block at the desired size and stomping if off. Sawing the board off also works, but it doesn't maintain the board's rustic look.
