There are many joys to gardening, one of them being admiring the view of your beautiful plants. One annoying thing that most people don’t enjoy is the pesky weeds. As much as we try to stop them from growing, they are inevitable. But before you reach for just any weed-destroying product, you should know there are natural alternatives!
It may come as a surprise but common household supplies like vinegar and boiling water can keep those pesky weeds at bay. So this year, ditch the products that are laden with toxic chemicals and give one of these natural home remedies for killing weeds a try!
If you’re going to do some landscaping, consider using landscape fabric. This special fabric is a perforated material and it still allows water and moisture to reach your soil — an important part of growing healthy plants! Luckily, the barrier also stops unwanted plants from sprouting and thus can help keep weeds out of your garden.
Landscape fabric can be purchased online or from your local home improvement retailer. If you’re worried about the installment process, don’t fret! Laying down landscape fabric is easy to do! The Spruce has an excellent step-by-step guide you can follow.
