Hi Normah: If you want a home made option, this is what I use:
1 gallon of white vinegar
2 cups of epsom salt
Mix these together until the salt is dissolved.
Add in 1/4 cup of Dawn or any dish washing detergent. Mix and put in a spray bottle or large container that has a spray nozzle on it. Then, in the morning, spray only what you want to kill as this will kill anything it touches:) So, be careful. By the next day, whatever you sprayed should be dead. This is not for spot treating a lawn as you will get a spotted lawn! Yikes! So, you can use it in your flower garden, but be sure not to spray your flowers, just the weeds.
I just did my yard yesterday. Today, weeds are dead:)
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.
Thank you for your feedback.
Hi this is Peggy. The best way to eliminate weed is to pull them or dig them getting all the roots so they don't come back. There are many weed and feed products for the lawn you can use. You can also use weed killer but please be careful not to get it on your grass or plants.
Yes, have tried that. Back breaking job!
This article is really helpful
Thank you for the different options. Most probably will try the boiling water option.!
Hi Normah - The struggle is real, isn't it?!? This is the most effective all-natural weed killer DIY that we use. It's even been featured on Hometalk! Hope this helps! Hugs, Holly

Yes, its really challenging as am not young anymore but still want to keep my teeny small garden.
There are several here on HT:
This is not an exact science – approximate measures are totally fine 1 gallon white vinegar and cup Epsom salts and ¼ cup liquid dish soap Combine ingredients in spray bottle and treat weeds at the hottest time of day for best results.
