    Kathleen,

    The only thing I find is ground cover if it’s for a planting bed. Other wise it’s yearly treatment with home made spray or good ole pulling.

    Pulling weeds after the rain helps get more of the roots. If the roots stay it will grow back. Like eyebrow tweezing!

    Preen granules work very well, but should not be used in newly seeded areas or with very young plant growth, nearby.

    From Where?????? If this is in a garden, don't use the salt. If its in your grass, don't use any of the ideas I see, it will kill the grass too. For a proper answer we need more information, I am surprised at the answers not knowing where the weeds are growing.,

    Hi Kathlene: Persistence! Use the vinegar recipe in the spring, and whenever you see them popping their little bits up out of the ground, maybe once a month, and in the fall. Eventually you will kill off all of the seeds or roots. Here is the recipe:


    1 gallon of white vinegar

    2 cups of Epsom salts

    1/4 cup of dish washing detergent, like Dawn.

    Mix the vinegar and salt until the salt is completely dissolved.

    Mix in the Dawn until mixed well, but not all fuzzy and sudsy, sort of swirl it around.

    Put in a spray bottle and spray the weeds liberally, in the morning after the dew has gone. Then, by evening the weeds should be dead or on their way out. Don't spray anything you want to keep or it will die too. I have used this and it works quite well. Also, it's good for making an edging as it kills only what it touches. If you have something like a piece of cardboard, hold it up and down, edgewise, and spray the area you want as an edge. Just be careful not to spray your flowers and/or bushes.


    Or:


    Borax

    You might not have thought of using this kitchen must-have in your garden, but it’s very helpful for killing unwanted weeds. All you have to do is add 10 ounces to 2 ½ gallons of water, mix thoroughly, and spray onto the weeds thoroughly. Watching them wither away smugly, optional.


    Cornmeal

    The proteins in cornmeal – or specially-processed corn gluten meal – stop any seed from germinating and growing. You can also sprinkle cornmeal on grown weeds, it’ll kill them just as well as it’ll stop them from growing.


    Vinegar

    One quick way to get rid of weeds? Pouring or spraying a little white vinegar on the offending weeds. This acidic masterpiece is perfect for shriveling weeds, just be careful of your flowers. A little excess spray won’t hurt them, but accidentally pouring the same amount of vinegar on your flowers as your weeds could kill them.
