Encroaching grass in humid climate

Hi There,

Is there any way of stopping a buffalo (very wide broad leaf) grass from encroaching into my beautiful bermuda turf lawn?
I live in a humid climate (Asia) and have had to manmually pull all encroaching grasses out by hand once per week.

install some solid edging into the soil. Use either plastic or metal solid edging. The rizomes will find their way through any gaps. If the edging is at least 6 inches deep the rizomes should not be able to pass.
