I second Lisa's solution,   It takes but one season and the quack grass is
gone.   dig it out, carefully and remove every white root you can see.  Lay
them out in the sun and let them dry and then compost, or if you're into hot
composting they will compost very well.   Every time you see a blade, go
after its root.

I'm of the school of digging it out, deep fork, get all the roots, do not 
rototill it, throw away the weeds, do not compost,THEN mulch (thick, 
frequent). Tis my belief that Americans always need to 'apply' something on 
their weeds, rather than pulling properly. And I'm also of the belief that 
weeds are simply opportunistic species of plants, and gardening is a refined

type of editing. Consistent maintenance goes a long way...
Best of luck,
