I did not have to venture far into the yard to find an abundance of weeds for this experiment.
I had read that vinegar works very well for getting rid of weeds in your lawn and garden. The main issue with vinegar is that it can harm other plants.
So using a foam paintbrush to brush the vinegar directly onto the leaves of weeds you’re trying to kill is an effective approach. Don’t be dainty about it, it will take way too much time. Just dob it onto the weed getting as much of the leaves as possible.
Boiling Water for Sidewalk Weeds
Boil some water, and pour it over weeds in the cracks of your sidewalks or driveways. Most weeds can’t stand up to this treatment, and your problem is solved. Just be careful when pouring!
But if you have some really stubborn weeds, you can try diluting a few teaspoons of water into some white vinegar and pouring that onto your sidewalk weeds. Please note that this concoction will kill just about any plant it comes in contact with, so keep it away from your other plants, as well as your lawn.
By having just a handful of inexpensive items on hand, you can take care of most common gardening dilemmas in your own, green way.
