8 Ways to Kill Weeds Naturally


Eight ways to get rid of weeds
naturally Pulling weeds one by one is usually the
task gardeners hate most, but there are other ways to get rid of
those pesky plants. Perhaps you’re considering using a common weed killer, but those contain harmful chemicals that travel through the soil to other plants. They can even stay in your soil for as
long as a year. These synthetic chemicals are also dangerous to use around pets and kids. For those who don’t want to use chemical
weed killer, there are better and safer options to get your weed-free lawn and garden. Here are eight ways to kill weeds naturally. First, make sure you’re buying
high-quality seeds. Check the label to make sure your grass seed has less than
two percent of weed seeds, like grassy or broadleaf weeds,
crop seeds, like corn or wheat, and inert matter like chaff or soil
particles. Second, a natural weed killer can be
found right in your kitchen. Vinegar and dish soap: in a spray bottle
combine two parts white distilled vinegar, one part water, and a few drops of dish
soap. Spray the solution on the weed in the
morning of a dry, hot day. Be careful where you spray though, because this DIY solution will kill most plants it touches. Another
weed killer found in the kitchen is salt. Mix three tablespoons of salt, and just enough warm water to liquefy
solution. Salt kills weeds by causing dehydration, but it also makes the soil barren, so
only use this weed killer in areas that you don’t want any vegetation — like a stony path. Fourth, smother your
weeds with mulch. Don’t throw away the morning newspaper
yet. Paper, leaves, straw, or even a black tarp are
great materials to use to suffocate your weeds. Just make sure you put enough mulch on the
weeds to block out any light. Fifth, give your weeds a scalding hot
bath. This method works best for young weeds
that aren’t hardy enough to withstand boiling water. Next, crowd out any unwanted weeds by
keeping your soil’s pH level balanced and not mowing your grass to low.
Growing a densely planted garden or lawn can repress any weeds that might not belong. Seventh, use corn gluten to keep weeds from
ever popping up. This corn byproduct found in Concern® Weed
Prevention Plus® prevents germination of seeds, doesn’t
have an effect on already established plants. Corn gluten also provides a healthy dose of nitrogen, which is a nutrient plants need to grow. Lastly, use Safer® Brand’s Fast-Acting Weed & Grass Killer, which uses potassiumsalts from fatty acids to kill weeds within hours. Safer® Brand’s Weed Killer doesn’t travel through the soil, so it won’t injure nearby plants, and the solution breaks down to its natural state in less than a week. Don’t let weeds get
the better of you. Use these eight natural solutions to prevent
and get rid of weeds naturally.
