I always had a little horsetail but last year my property was full of it. It was not affected by the weed Killers I applied on the drive nor did Round up kill it in the beds. My area is too big to tackle it by hand. I want to be prepared this year to zap it immediately but with what? Please advise

You could clear the area of plants and lay down black polythene to shut out all light and this will eventually kill it.

Lawn weedkiller has some effect on it, but it will need to be repeated and you must not get lawn weedkiler on garden plants.
