I had prickly pear in a previous garden and our solution was to isolate it from grass and other invaders by putting it in a bed that was bounded by gravel walkways. That limited the amount of weeds that jumped in it so we were only weeding once or twice a year. I know it’s not earth friendly but this is one time I think that carefully painting some Roundup on the newly emerging weeds would be easier than pulling them.
