Getting rid of weeds can be a tricky business. In many cases, homeowners are known to damage their lawn in the process or use methods that are not effective enough. To avoid all that, consider the following methods:
- One of the main tips that gardeners will recommend for dealing with weeds is to water your plants while avoiding watering your weeds. That way, your plants and lawn will get more nourishment, while the weeds will wither and die more easily.
- Another good approach is to kill weeds at their roots, but leave the soil, along with any dormant weed seeds, largely untouched.
- Buy a safe herbicide that targets only your weeds. For that purpose, you’ll have to do some research and find out exactly what type of weed plant grows in your yard, and what formula you need to get in order to deal with it. After a few weeks apply an organic lawn care fertilizer to nurture your lawn.
- A mixture of vinegar and salt will get rid of weeds naturally, without the need to apply commercial herbicide. To do it properly, mix about a gallon of white vinegar with a cup of table salt and a tablespoon of dish detergent. Then place the mixture into a spray bottle and spray it directly onto the weeds, while being careful to not target your lawn and plants.
