    Where are the weeds in the lawn or garden and do you know what they are or can you post a photo?

    Have you tried suffocating them? Cover the area with newspaper layers (biodegradable) and layer mulch on top. If the weeds somehow get through just add another couple newspaper layers and more mulch. Good luck!

    That is a good idea. You want pulp mash paper. Not sure that is what you call it...but the paper that is super absorbent. Try it!! Good luck and let us know if it worked.

    One thing that has always worked for me is boiling salt water. 6 cups water, 1/2 cup table salt, bring to a rolling boil. Take your pan off the burner and go directly to the weed to be killed, slowly pour on the weed including any flowers and leaves. Crouch down when you pour so the water doesn't hit the ground and splash back on you. Be warned that any surrounding plants or grass will also be killed. In the past I've used an Elizabethan collar (cone) that is used for dogs to keep the salt water from going where I don't want it. You can get this at a vet clinic or create something similar on your own.

    Weeds all over the world are a problem for lovely maintained gardens;though a few are beautiful & required(something lots don't look @ for their own space,& to much removal means losing other types of plants, even creatures..) After saying this i highly suggest Never to buy Round-up" weed killer, actually for the earths safety don't use any chemical based weed killer...it 'kills' , even humans!
    And so can natural ideas however working with Natural Meds for years(in addition to my work as a stylist/decorator ect..) two good graded aroma oils blended with only warm water in a good spray bottle(a large spray nozzle is needed), well this is whats required. •Note to keep away pets for safety... Pennyroyal, great for many many things", in a half litre bottle of warm water use 5-7 drops, then add Orange concentrate oil & use 6 drops,add a soup spoon of cider vinegar & shake real hard...{The oils are decent aromatherapy bottles & will last a very long time..always store away from the sun, so no window ledges}... Spray carefully on the offending weeds;try lifting the weeds( with gloves on) & spray right @ the root areas... •If worried about neighbours pets then after your procedure use damp newspaper & cover the offending areas over night.... The Orange Will keep away cats, especially male cats that like to spray, so over all its dogs that are more curious.
    The Pennyroyal in combination with Orange(& cider vin) creates a central cell blocker with most weeds... also your PH of your soil won't be destroyed & after a couple of weeks one can grow something else in the vacant spot.
    I like the use of pink organic salts for many things" though i would not suggest it on any nice gardens as one will alter the soil to a point that nothing can grow for years;it also destroys little creatures like worms that are really needed for great gardens//& Mother earth:)))
