As a property owner, you focus on maintaining your home and landscaping. And whether you’ve spotted just a few weeds around your property or they are becoming a major issue, there are ways to address them for good. Take advantage of the following tips in order to say goodbye to weeds for good.
While weeds can easily become a nuisance, there are a number of ways you can get rid of them using common household items. For example, you can place newspapers over weeds to block sunlight. This will kill the existing weeds and stop the spread of new ones. For the best results, place newspaper at least 10 sheets thick over weeds and cover the area with some mulch.
You can also use boiling water. Simply pour a pot of boiling water over the affected areas and you can expect the weeds to shrivel up almost immediately. Similarly, you can also use vinegar or vodka. For vinegar, you can put a small amount in a plastic spray bottle. Make sure you don’t spray any of your other plants while attacking the weeds. As for vodka, mix it with a bit of water and dish soap and you will have a homemade weed killing formula.
Try these methods out yourself to discover what works best for your landscape, and rest easy knowing weeds will soon be a problem of the past.
