Mulching is another handy gardening hack that keeps weeds at bay, this is because of the blanketing effect which stops weeds from pushing through the mulch layer.
Weeds can be hard to dig out purely because of where they are growing, but there are a few super easy natural ewed killers that will get rid of them for good, without having to turn to chemicals.
1. Hot Water
Simply boil water and pour it over weeds. They won’t be able to tolerate the hot water and will die off. This is likely to kill most plants, so only pour the water where it won’t get on those you want to keep. After all, you don’t want it running down onto the lawn and killing that too.
There aren't many products that can do as much as vinegar. Not only can it clean every area of your home but vinegar is a weed killer too. Vinegar is best used on young, annual weeds and applied several times. However, vinegar also has the potential to target the older more stubborn weeds, all you need to do is drench the roots with a strong 20 per cent vinegar mix.
Salt is another multi-purpose product you're likely to have in your pantry that can be used to kill weeds. Sprinkle salt over roots and it will work to dehydrate them and disrupt the internal water balance of plant cells, eventually killing them. Be careful not to overdo it as salt has the possibility to affect soil conditions for the rest of your garden.
Salt and vinegar can also be paired together with some dish soap to create the ultimate DIY weed-killing concoction.
