Which Organic Weed Control Methods are Effective?
Give little space for weed growth
For lawns, ensure that there are no empty spaces in your law where the weeds can spring up. Grow and maintain a thick, healthy lawn by aerating and dethatching your yard, mowing often and adequately, frequent watering, overseeding and applying compost or organic fertilizers when necessary.
For gardens, plant disease-resistant varieties so plants can be closely spaced, spread ground covers and mulch over the open spaces in the farms and plant low growing plants in between the taller species to use up bare land areas.
Topping is the simple act of cutting off the flowers and seeds of weeds before they shed. It helps reduce the number of weed seeds in the soils and works well with annual and perennial weed species. Topping can be done by mowing or using a hand scythe.
Mulching and Newspaper covers
Mulching is one of the best organic weed control methods for gardens and vegetable beds. Mulching at the right time will smother existing weeds and prevent the germination of new ones. You can also cover the open spaces on your garden bed with newspapers before placing the mulch on it, especially for areas where the weeds are quite stubborn and much.
There are several simple home tricks you can employ to control the growth of unwanted plants on your lawn or garden. Some of which include;
a) Pouring boiling water over the weeds, especially weeds. You can add a little salt to the boiling water to make it more effective.
b) By spraying vinegar on the weeds; Household vinegar contains acetic acid (up to 5%) which can be used as a weed killer when sprayed repeatedly. However, you have to be careful as vinegar is a non-selective weed killer so it can kill your plants too if it comes in contact with it.areas where the weeds are quite stubborn and much.
Weed flamers are simple propane torches redesigned to burn stubborn weeds. These torches have flame nozzles that can be tuned to tiny sizes and used to target individual grasses. It is best for weeds growing along lawn edges, walkways and garden beds. Basically, you burn the weed to death!
Organic pre-emergent herbicides
These pre-emergent herbicides are made from a purely natural source, corn gluten meal, and act in a very similar manner to their chemical equivalents. It inhibits the germination of all seeds where it is sprayed and therefore requires cautious use.
The traditional hand pulling methods need you to go on your hands and knees and pull the weeds out from the roots using a hand trowel. It doesn’t sound like much fun, but when done right, it’s a very effective way of natural weed control. However, nowadays, there are other useful weed-pulling implements you can use while standing like the Lee Valley Dandelion Digger and Fiskars Stand-Up Weeder.
Organic herbicides are usually made from the mixture of naturally occurring acids and oils including clove oil, acetic acid, citric acid, citrus oil and others. There are non-selective and selective options for you to choose, and they work just as effectively as chemical herbicides too.
