Some things you apply herbicides when flowering or ripening/maturing fruit because the rest of the plant it is a weak energy state.

however with blackberries choosing the fall did catch them in a somewhat weakened state but also to take advantage of the flow/sink to roots to store up energy for winter. This way more of the herbicide is carried into the roots supposedly getting a better overall kill rate.

Someone I know did the goat thing, cleaned out what they wanted to get rid of. Not sure what they paid. My grandfather raised goats in the 60's and 70's. If he only knew of the possibilities he would have died a rich man.

goats might be the way.

when we first moved here, we had an ivy patch from the neighbors yard encroaching in our yard. it was about 8 feet by 95 feet. it took me 2 seasons to pull it out by hand.
anyway, ivy isn't hard to pull out, it doesn't root deep and whatever root is left, doesn't usually survive or can be easily pulled out once it starts growing again. but 1/4 acre is pretty large to pull by hand.

blackberries. I have no idea what's involved with removing that. we have a batch that's growing behind a Euonymus bush.

I would not be apposed to the use of Ortho brush killer if it's used carefully. we use it once in a while, sprintz very close to the plant to prevent over-spray.

 
Check southern extension sites for info with blackberry control. I recall it being a matter of timing - attack the plant when it is at it's weakest to be more effective. Just don't recall the details of when

Throwing a piece of shade cloth over my raspberry plant last summer seems to be paying off - winter is here and I'm harvesting berries. {#Think}. But the frost this week may end that.  Worth it for one batch of waffles, though.

It's a blackberry. and not especially sweet. they're ok, but not enough to continue to let it grow. after the fruit is done, it's coming up.

In another part of the garden, I think I have a volunteer Milkweed plant. I'll get pics.

The berries look like blackberry, but the leaves are different than our local flavor of invasive thorny bastard plant. But I know there are a lot of different varieties (Himalayan are our worst and most weedlike) . I say wait a year, in the fall your car will be covered in difficult to remove, ugly bird droppings and next spring thousands will sprout all over the place and it will no longer be safe to be barefoot in the yard. 

 
The sport in this neighborhood is to take a walk to get a snack. Especially on the roadway down to the beach. Fruit heaven!
