This winter and early spring has been particularly wet this year in most of California. And while this is great for our tendencies toward drought, everything (and we mean everything!) is growing like weeds. When the weeds threaten to overrun your garden or lawn, here are some eco-friendly solutions to get rid of those annoying buggers.
CasaSugar recently featured four simple ways to kill weeds without the use of toxic solutions. Here are two of the easiest:
• 1 Pour hot water over any plants that you want to kill and the weeds will essentially boil to death.
• 2 The acid in lemon juice will also work to kill the plants, causing them to shrivel up and die in a day or two.
To see the other two solutions, including one for larger weed problems, go to CasaSugar: 4 Eco-Friendly Ways to Kill Weeds.
