Getting Rid of Weeds and Shrub Shoots in Flower Garden?

I have hydrangeas and spireas along with weeds in my flower garden that are constantly appearing, in abundance! How do I kill the shoots without killing the plants?

I just pull them out by hand.

Is there anyway to put down landscaping fabric (or newspaper) and then mulch on top?
This can be done even is you have a few weeds (but I would not try it if covered with weeds).
Sometimes you can put down black plastic bags (over some of the weeds if the area is large) and leave the bags until they kill the weeds. If the good plants are still getting water and sunshine the bags will not usually do any harm.

I have done this and it did not harm my plants but keep check on your plants.

I have heard that some people use a small paint brush and touch a few weeds at a time using white vinegar but I'm not sure about this method.
