How can I get rid of trumpet vine? It is taking over everything.

You can cut the stems back to about 2 feet. Put some concentrated Round-up in a Ziploc freezer bag and put the cut end of the stem into the liquid. As the days get hot and the plant gets thirsty, the Roundup is absorbed into the plant. It takes awhile, but this even works for sticker bushes.
That's a mandevilla. I am so happy that I got a mandevilla bloom inside the house in the winter, late February. I am zone 5. These indoor blooms are a treat for me.
To get rid of all vines, flowers, weeds, etc., without using harmful chemicals, just cover with old carpet or cardboard or anything heavy that blocks the sun. It will kill it safely without adding toxins to the earth.
