Even burning may not kill pesky weeds

I have been talking about different weeding options in this column for years now. I’ve always held that pulling them out by the roots is the best way to immediately rid your yard of weeds. I’ve also discussed using a pre-emergent twice annually as well as a post-emergent when necessary. Then there’s always the glyphosate chemical that, when carefully applied to weeds, can kill them in a few days. I’ve mentioned organic home remedies, such as boiling water and vinegar that may or may not kill weeds effectively. And to mow regularly! Comments (0)
