Keeping weeds from overtaking your lawn or garden is one of the most important tasks facing any home gardener. While many resort to using man-made herbicides, the more environmentally conscious ones choose to take a more natural approach. Here are a few suggestions on how to “go green” with your weed control:
Get Physical – It has worked for thousands of years and in many ways is the most effective way to rid your garden of those nuisances that threaten your more valuable plants. For best results, ensure that you get as much of the root as possible.
Try Boiling Water – No weed – and I mean, no weed! – can withstand a even a minor scalding. So the next time you make pasta, use the leftover water to destroy some of the more problematic weeds in your yard.
Use Vinegar – Especially good for weeds with long taproots, like dandelions, dock, and plantain, enough vinegar will kill almost anything.
