Use a selective herbicide that will kill the grass and not the plants.

You may want to start weed whacking it down and then pulling it out (depends on how big the space is and if you can get into the shrub area). Chemicals are not good if you have pets, small children, or the area has run off into your sewage systems, but I am a totally anti chemical person.

If you absolutely want to use something to kill the grass after you get it as short as possible, pour regular white vinegar on it. Several treatments should kill off the grass.

I do not particular like using chemicals but sometimes it is difficult to do the job any other way.

I'm assuming you cannot use a weed wacker to trim the grass?
You will need to trim the grass before using anything so maybe grass clippers would work?
I use vinegar on some weeds but too much of this and it could also kill your shrubs so use that with a lot of caution.

I would suggest trimming the weeds and then putting down landscape fabric and 2-4 inches of mulch.
I really prefer using several layers of newspapers and then add mulch on top.
