19 Dec Everything you need to know about getting rid of those pesky weeds
Are weeds cropping across your garden, encroaching on your precious flowers and beloved vegetables? This can be any gardener’s nightmare. If you want to avoid this pesky situation, you need to be on top of maintaining your lawn turf. A good maintenance routine prevents weeds from germinating quickly and damaging your lawn. Want to know how to get rid of weeds for good?
Here is how.
This is a method where you cover the soil’s surface with mulch to preserve moisture and enhance the health of your soil. It protects the root system by insulating the soil and preventing weed germination, especially during summer and winter.
Deep watering enables your grass to grow strong root stems and helps them become healthy enough to resist weed growth. It’s best to water your soil deeply during the summer months, at least three times a week.
Mowing is essential for weed control and overall maintenance of your lawn. Regular mowing can help you get rid of those unwanted weeds and keep the blades at the ideal height for photosynthesis and nutrient absorption. It also ensures the grass grows evenly throughout your yard.
Using homemade weed spray
Why use chemical weed sprays available in the market, when you can make a weed spray at home which is fresh, safe and doesn’t come with any side effects? If you want to make a weed spray that does the job without hindering the grass growth, we have the perfect recipe for you.
Vinegar-based weed spray is one of the most effective varieties of weed control since vinegar contains acetic acid, which kills weeds.
To get started, grab the following ingredients:
- 2 cups distilled vinegar
- 3 tablespoons concentrated lemon juice
- 30mL of rubbing alcohol
- 2 teaspoons dishwashing soap
- 1 teaspoon water
To make this weed spray, simply mix and pour the ingredients into a plastic spray bottle and spray directly onto the weeds, but be careful not to spray too much on the grass or surrounding plants.
