Want to Know What the Different Options for Weed Abatement Are?


Some gardeners want a more organic approach to weed abatement. Mulch is still a firm favorite and can be quite effective, as it deprives the weeds of light. Using newspaper layers or landscaping fabric beneath mulch will also boost its effectiveness. Other non-chemical types include boiling water, salt, dish washing soap, vinegar, and even alcohol.

While these could kill and pre-existing weeds on a temporary basis, they will not solve your long term weed issue. Another type of weed control is chemical, this means using herbicides to kill or prevent weeds from growing. Because most herbicides are formulated for specific weeds, a gardener needs to understand the kind of weed they are dealing with. Just the same as plants, weeds are biennial or perennial.
