Organic Weed Control Recipe
Looking to control weeds in spaces you don't intend to plant? We have a recipe to keep weeds in check in driveways and walkways. Mix up a solution of the following:
1 gallon of horticultural or industrial strength vinegar (5-20% concentration)
1 cup of epsom salts (purchase at your local garden center for a good price!)
1 tsp of natural soap
Apply with a sprayer or watering can. Applying early on a hot day will help with the effectiveness. Remember this is only for use in spaces where you don't intend to grow any plants or grass as essentially you are salting the earth. Wear gloves! Vinegar can burn your skin at higher concentrations.
Have a large space to conquer? Lay a tarp down. Not only will it block sun but will deprive weeds of water as well for quick elimination.
