overrun w/blackberries!

I have a steep incline on one side of my property that is overrun with blackberry bushes. These are starting to make their way into my yard. Is there anything I can “toss” down the side to kill these? I hear they are close to impossible to get rid of. I don’t see how I could get myself down there to get at them manually. Any Ideas?

When the plants make new leaves this year, spray them with RoundUp. This should kill them. If you don't mind the plants' being on the hill, you could cut a trench along a line and insert a layer of landscape fabric to stop the plants' rooting underground. This will keep them from moving out of the hill.

Before you get rid of them, can I come with a pail and pick bunch? The yard next to mine is very overgrown and has blackberries. Every year not only do I pick what is growing on my fence, but I sneak in (no one lives there) and pick more.
