We use a chemical called POAST to kill grasses in flower beds. I don't
know the active ingredient. If you can get it in CA, your local farm store
or greenhouse supply may have it.

This chemical is mixed with dormant oil, and sprayed right over the beds.
Only the grasses are killed. It works well, you just have to clean out all
the dead grass a couple of weeks later.
