A Vinegar and Salt Mixture
Is there any substance as versatile and useful as white vinegar? We don’t believe so. It can be used for cooking, cleaning, and even week control. Start by taking one gallon of vinegar and adding one cup of salt. Then add a few tablespoons of fragrance-free, color-additive-free dish soap. Use a spray bottle to apply it to the leaves of the weeds.
For certain types of weeks, you can skip the vinegar altogether and just use salt water. This only works on weeds that aren’t waxy or hairy. Just take one pat of salt to eight parts of hot water. Once it is mixed up, spray it on the leaves.
Use Boiling Water to Clear Out the Weeds
This is just as simple as it sounds. Take some water, boil it, and pour it on weeds. Yes, this will kill other plants but because you have an artificial lawn, you want all the plants in your yard killed.
What happens when you have a little too much alcohol to drink? You wake up dehydrated. The same thing happens if you pour vodka on weeds – they are robbed of the water it needs to survive. Take one ounce of any vodka (do not waste your good stuff on this) with two cups of water. Spray that mixture on the leaves. This is great especially on sunny days because the weeds will be dried out very quickly.
Corn Gluten Meal
It’s not just humans that can be gluten intolerant – but, despite the name, this byproduct of corn does not have gluten. It is an eco-friendly weed killer that can be shaken around the base of the weeds. It is available in many garden shops and can be found at mills as well.
Use an Eco-Friendly Weed Killer
If you’d rather not come up with your own solution, but you also don’t want to deal with unnatural products, you are in luck. There are many natural, eco-friendly weed killers on the market. Try looking for reviews of the main options with websites that rate eco-friendly options.
If you want to be truly earth-friendly then you will ditch your water-needy lawn in favor of artificial grass. If you want a quote, or would like to learn more about your options, contact All Season Turf at (866) 365-8873 at your convenience.
