The secret with weeds is to catch them early before they grow and become harder to remove. You do not have to buy a chemical weedkiller to do the job, but instead you can use common ingredients that you already have in the house. I came across an article by D.G. Sciortino which I found on the Shareably website which tells you all you need to know.
With spring here, it?s time for us to start tending to our gardens. Though you?ll want to rid your garden of unsightly weeds that can strangle out your other plants, you might not want to douse them with harsh chemicals.
You can keep your plants, your children, and the environment safe by using natural remedies to kill garden weeds. Here are eight of our favorite.
Baking Soda for Crevices
Sprinkle baking soda into the spaces between your pavers and other parts of your patio to prevent weeds, like dandelions, from growing. They won?t like the sodium.
Salt Water Solution
Bring 1 cup of salt and 2 cups of water to a boil. You?ll want to pour this mixture directly onto your weeds to kill them. You can also sprinkle some salt directly on unwanted grass and weeds that pop up.
Fill a spray bottle with some vinegar and spray it directly onto the weeds or grass you want to kill. Spray the root or lowest level of the stem to the top of the weed so you kill the roots and it won?t grow again.
You may have to repeat this every other day until it stops growing, especially if it rains. Also, be careful to protect your other plants from the spray.
