I use one cup of vinegar, one cup of salt to two gallons water in a garden sprayer. Saturate the weeds till dripping. Do not use on lawn or in garden. Will kill everything. Boiling water on weeds in lawn and garden.
Hello. Weed control can be an ongoing situation with a multifocal approach. Some helpful ideas include the following
Cultural control in ornamental beds
Prevent going to seed; hand pulls easily. Do not compost plants with seed heads.
I have resorted to placing pieces of cardboard out on top of weeds or unwanted groundcover-in the flower garden on top of weeds but not covering flowers and placing mulch on top. It works very well for smothering out unwanted vegetation
Weeds grass elimination
A commercial herbicide would work if you dont mind chemicals, or a flame torch like a weed dragon.
We had a 200 foot pea gravel driveway that was a nightmare to maintain. Weeds grass and nuisance vegetation constantly popped up. Our options were to use round up vegetation killer or the weed dragon.Both worked but needed continued reapplication which seemed like 7-10 days. We ended up putting in a concrete driveway to solve this issue and I’ve never been happier!
Weed dragons are a big hit to ignite fire pits too smiling
They come in different sizes and prices depending on individual need. Great for gravel driveway weeding.
If your weedy situation is too close to a flammable structure this weed burner won't be an option!
Never burn poison ivy!
