Are There Any Eco-Friendly Non-Toxic Weed Killers?

Good Question

Pin it button big

Q: I'm looking for a non-toxic, non-herbicidal weed killer, one that isn't going to contaminate water and kill my pets. But I also want it to be effective. (Homemade DIY recipes haven't cut it for me.) Any ideas?

Editor: Layla, we've heard that Burnout is a good option. Made from clove oil, vinegar and lemon juices and OMRI listed for use in organic production, Burnout is a contact, broad-spectrum weed killer, meaning that it kills everything and anything that it touches, and it works in eight hours or less. It can be used to kill Chickweed, Black Medic, Dandelion, Pigweed, Algae and Moss, Foxtail, Ivy Leaf, Morning Glory, Poison Hemlock, Milkweed, Liverwort, Ragweed, Clover, Sicklepod, Quackgrass, and Bluegrass. We've read very positive reviews of it.

Other suggestions for Layla?
