We love our garden and work very hard to grow vegetables, fruits and beautiful flowers. But along with these we might notice some unwanted vegetation. They may grow in cracks, on patio or on side walks. These invaders are weeds that not only make your garden look unpleasant but may also consume the nutrients that are required for your palnts to stay healthy. Stated below are some natural ways to get rid of weeds without using harsh chemicals that may also damage your plants.
Here Are The 5 Natural Ways To Get Rid Of Garden Weeds:
Pull out the unwanted invaders. This may sound easy but sometimes gets arduous as they may be growing very close to the plants. The correct way to pull out weeds is after watering so that the soil is still moist. Wear garden gloves and then pull out the weeds from the base so it comes out from the roots and not grow back again.
Take 2 cups vinegar and add half cup salt to it. Also add a bit of dish soap to it. Mix everything very well and store in a spray bottle. Be careful while using this, as it may harm your plants.
Just sprinkle some salt where weeds have grown. This will kill the weeds. Make sure to not use it in your garden as this will make the soil barren.
Use a blow torch that is used in cooking and flame them just enough to dehydrate them and they will die off in a day or two. Make sure to use this carefully as this might burn other plants ( also avoid near dry grass ).
Use the water left over after boiling potatoes and pour them over the weeds. This will kill the unwanted growth in a few days. But remember to use it only on sidewalks and cracks as using it in the garden will damage the soil and make it infertile.
Use these remedies wisely to clear your garden area off weeds. Make sure you do not harm other plants in the process of killing weeds. You may also use the pulled out weeds in making compost. Some weeds are edible, but make sure you research about them very well before consuming some weeds.
