When I moved here, the bindweed was so rampant it was covering a wall 20' long and 15' high, as well as scrambling though all the borders. I dug out miles and miles of roots, but am lucky that my soil is very light and free draining - in anything heavier, it would have been impossible. Now I get the occasional wispy bit poking up, which I immediately nip off thinking that chlorophyll deprivation will nobble it.
I think I tried glyphosate a couple of times, but found that elbow grease was more effective in my situation. Probably a combination of both would be best for you. It can be done, but takes time, persistence, vigilance and determination. Good luck!
