All three main ingredients are chemicals, and one weed scientist who has written about it argues that toxicity levels in vinegar and salt may be higher than in glyphosate.There’s really nothing organic about the dish soap, either. (You can read his analysis here: weedcontrol-freaks.com/2014/06/salt-vinegar-and-glyphosate/)And there’s education,magic solutions usually aren’t half as good as they sound, and sometimes they can do considerable harm. Do your research before you use any chemical — homemade or not — in the garden. You need to remove dead grass & soil in area/dig it out then add fresh top soil and grass seed even if you try to lay sod you need to replace the dead soil or it won't take
Hi MizGG. If you're hoping to grow new grass, rake up and remove all that died as a result of these chemicals. Make a mix of equal parts of compost, top soil, and grass seeds. Loosen up the soil and spread out this mixture. You can use a rake to get a more even distribution. Water this area every 2 or 3 days with a light sprinkle. And then graduating to watering every other day as the summer heat begins. You can put a layer of straw on top of your affected area to keep the birds from eating all your seeds. Good luck.
Anything that calls for vinegar and table salt will kill anything it touches, including a lot of the nutrients in the soil. Nothing will grow very quickly where you sprayed it without amending the soil to the depth the solution may have gone in the soil. Cindy gave you great advise on what to do to grow new grass. Any weed killing solution with table salt and vinegar should only be used instead where grass and keeper plants don't grow, such as the driveway or sidewalk cracks. So sorry you didn't know about the changes the weed killer does to your grass and soil. If you must use it on weeds in your yard or gardens, you need to wipe it on with a paint brush or rag only on the leaves and that will save your lawn, it may be a bit more time and trouble, but it beats having to replace your lawn.
Hello, rake out the dead stuff, add some top soil or peat moss, seed and add more peat in a thing layer over the seeds, water every day.
