If you keep cutting off the above ground parts, the plants will eventually
exhaust themselves and die.  For some woody plants this may take more than 
a year, however, and you have to keep at it frequently.  You can also try 
covering the area with opaque material like black plastic or cardboard.  
Since you are apparently in a hot climate, you could also try covering the 
area with clear plastic and cook the plants to death.
