In only my own way, pulling them up and getting rid of the roots is the best way and cheapest and in the end best. once on top of the problem and kept in check ,no problem .

tall white reed type flowers

it may be the dreaded pampus or a reed that grows in very damp soil or ditches, use to cut it for displays(cant think what the name is) or it could be a kind of grass, if you have photo it would help.

sadly round here for the last 5years I have not so much  as seen  a squashed Hedgehog let alone a live one. The birds seem to like fat balls and now seem to have gone off the nuts and seeds.

from what I have seen they like to grow  next to  a wall and restricted roots and the fruit  I have seen on these .I have miniature one and I know it does not like soggy feet and it does not like too much heat   .keep faith and don't re-pot to often its does not like to much movement.

one thing they don't like is soggy soil ,let them drink from the base and water when really dry  they like a warm sunny room and the more neglected the better.My grandfather grew one in a big pot in his sunny front room beautiful bracts and such  a marvel and my daughter who is good at killing plants has kept one for a whole year by forgetting to water it!good luck.

raked the lawn and pruned the most painful shrub ,swept the paths covered big pots in plastic and chopped up painful spikey branches and collapsed with a cuppa.
