How to Kill Weeds

It’s spring and flowers are blooming and beautiful things are popping up from the ground. However, not so beautiful things are popping up as well! Weeds. Eeek. The most difficult, for me is the grass and weeds that grow through the cracks in my patio.I can’t quite get my fingers in between to pull all of it up.

I like to stay away from pouring chemicals into the ground and eventually the waterways so I was excited to try this Eco-friendly method. Applying vinegar to the weeds. I found this method in Pinterest from the site A Garden for the House.

The website suggests spraying the weeds but I poured vinegar directly to the them.

This is the effect a few days later. I just realized that I took my photo from the other direction! You still get the idea.

I think its fair to say that this experiment worked. Perhaps not 100% but enough that I will be able to remove these weeds and hopefully prevent them from growing again. If not I’ll hit them with more vinegar!
