You’ve probably seen weeds growing in every crevice or crack of your walkways and they’re every bit of annoying to look at and deal with. Not only are they unflattering on your garden but they also compete with water and sunlight alongside your crops that they destroy them.
Fortunately, there are solutions to these kinds of problems. You can do something about this and keeping your garden weed free. Killing off weeds is easy. There are many ways to naturally destroy them. Below are just a few helpful tips on what you can do:
Salt is easy to find in your home, unless you never use this ingredient at all then you might want to hit your nearest grocery stores. Salt kills off weeds by dehydrating them and upsets their water balance. But this stays true for plants as well so be careful in using this on your soil.
Make a solution consisting of 2 cups water and 1 cup of salt. Bring this to a boil then pour it directly on the weeds. This ensures that they’ll be killed. You can also spread salt so as to keep them from thriving. You can also add water but you don’t have to do so if it is during the rainy season. The rain will do the work for you.
Be advised that this kind of tip is for small-scale gardening.
Vinegar is a natural weed killer. The active ingredient that causes such damage is acetic acid. To use this on your weeds, pour vinegar inside a spray bottle and easily spray on the weeds. Make sure to keep it off the plants you want to keep as vinegar is harmful for them as well.
Dumping baking soda unto weeds will kill them off. But if weeds grow alongside plants you’d like to keep, sprinkle baking soda on top of weeds carefully. Moisten it first with water or you can do it early in the morning where there’s morning dew forming on the weeds. You can sprinkle again after 4-6 weeks if weeds are still present.
All these weed killers can be found in your homes and are natural. Use these in proper amounts and you’ll be rid of weeds in no time.
