  • Yes, vinegar will kill weeds but you must be very careful as vinegar will kill anything it comes in contact with. If you are too afraid to try or experiment, use boiling water or a mound of epsom salt then following with boiling water. I have used all these methods as I do not want to use chemicals and I also have a bunch of pets.

    Cut the ends off an aluminum can so that you have a cylinder. Put it around the weed you want to zap. This will protect the surrounding plants. Obviously you can't just broadcast weed killer over a whole area without killing the good plants, so pull weeds where you can and use this technique when you aren't able to pull the whole root out.

    Yes, but it's also worthwhile to do the tough manual work of digging them out!
