	There are preparations around for Blackberry specifically. Roundup
is not very successful on big patches. Look for a chemical called
'Grazon'. Knocks them flat. Your local nursery or farm supplies store will
have it. There's some stuff on the net about it too, if you just key in
'Grazon' on your search engine.
