SBK Brushwood Killer

If If use a triclopyr (SBK Brushwood Killer) weed killer on brambles, will it 
leave the topsoil exposed and subject to erosion?

(Apparently, nothing but grass can grow for several months. Brambles have killed my lawn)

I want to use it so my garden will be clear of regrowth for longer than glyphosate ones.  

Thanks

    It won’t do that, bramble have quite small roots for the length they grow!

  • I’m concerned that SBK Brushwood Killer kills then inhibits the
    Growth of all plants for months. 

    Without the roots of plants holding the soil
     together, it might wash or blow away. 
  • The garden is small but entirely covered with brambles with no other
    plants or shrubs.

    It may do that but only if you are on a very steep hill.
