When it comes to growing crops for consumption or flowers for beautification, there’s something all planters have in common, weeds. To different gardeners and farmers, weeds can be poisonous, produce thorns, burrs or can contaminate garden harvests and can also be unpleasant. You have to figure out the best ways to get rid of weeds in your lawns or gardens.
Here are some fascinating yet helpful ways to get rid of weeds.
- Boiling water
Interestingly, boiling water has been found to be effective in dealing with weeds. All you need is to boil water in a kettle, and then pour it over weeds on your garden or lawn to burn them. This is an excellent technique if the weed is growing in the garden paths or cracks in your lawn.
- Alcohol or vodka
Another fascinating way of keeping weeds out is using Alcohol or Vodka. They particularly work well against annual weeds that are also growing in full sun exposure.
All you need to do is mix up alcohol or vodka and spray the mixture on the weeds to dry and kill them. Heads up, apply cautiously as alcohol easily dries up whatever it comes into contact with including your healthy plants.
A vinegar mix can help dry out weeds too. However, you have to apply this solution a number of times for it to work effectively, especially if the weeds have long roots. Opt for this technique during a hot day.
