I have burdock plants over 5' tall in my garden and dog kennel.  I don't know how to get rid of them.  When I lop them off they just grow back bigger and stronger.  I want them out of my yard.

try using an old mustard bottle with a pointed top......put pure white vinegar.....try to put right at the base....keep doing it all week............if this does not work you might need to read what it says on a weed & feed bag if it includes thistle/burdock for it's application.

If that does not work try boiling hot water with 3 cups of salt & commercial vinegar double strength sold at some walmarts.
