After I sent my original post the one and only user comment on the
relative date strings man page was pointed out to me. So, it's there but
how many people make a habit of reading all the user comments?

Anyway, the following work:

// first day of this month
$t1 = strtotime(date('Y-m',strtotime('this month')));

// last day of next month
// get the first day of month after next and subtract one day
$t2 = strtotime(date('Y-m',$t1 + (86400 * 70)))-86400;
