Bedrock Gardens is Helping You Get Rid of Weeds from Your Home

Trust Bedrock Gardens in Hazle Township, PA for quality information for how to kill weeds. Weeds are a nuisance on your property. They can ruin lawns, flower beds, and other portions of your property. Weeds also steal nutrients, and space from the plants you want. Check out tips below for controlling these unwanted visitors.


Use Quality Materials that Block Daylight to These Invaders

There are a variety of materials you can use for keeping weeds from finding daylight. Newspaper, old shower curtains, and carpet samples are some materials. Use 10-sheet layers of newspaper, wet them, and cover with an inch or two of mulch. These materials add more layers for burying weeds.


Corn Gluten Meal Keeps Weeds from Growing Roots in Your Yard

Corn gluten meal is perfect for keeping seeds from growing into those lawn pests. It helps prevent germination. Make sure you spread this around your plants after seedlings and transplants have taken hold. Following the harvest, make sure you spread it further to prevent weed growth on your lawn. That will keep weeds from finding daylight.

You Can Control Weed Growth with a Variety of Liquid Solutions

Vinegar is five percent acid, and it takes the life out of plants. It’s especially helpful against younger plants. You can also mix vodka with a couple drops of dish soap and water.

Make sure the plants you want covered are safe. Soap oils are strong enough to break down waxy or hairy weed surfaces.
