It’s less fun but effective! The best way to kill weeds and keep them from spreading on your lawn is to do it by hand. You want to pull out the weeds as soon as they sprout. Use a sharp tool and pull out the set of weeds (root included). In view of the work to be done, you might as well use the correct gardening tool. The garden weed knife is very well suited to help you uproot weeds.
Alcohol can be dehydrating (which may explain why you get really thirsty after drinking too much of it). This dehydrating effect works very well to put an end to weeds. Mix 30ml of vodka with 2 cups of water and a little dish soap. Mix in a spray bottle and water the weeds liberally. Water the weeds in the middle of the day when the sun is high for the best effect.
Mix 1 cup of salt with 4 quarts of vinegar, a little dish soap and a little citrus oil. Spray the mixture on the weeds.

One of the methods of getting rid of weeds over a large area of the garden is to prevent the light from reaching them. Take large torn boxes and cover the area attacked by weeds. The paper or black plastic will prevent sunlight from feeding the weeds.
A fertilized, healthy turf takes up tons of soil space and blocks weeds from germinating. Just be careful: too much fertilizer (even natural) can kill your lawn.
It’s a safe, simple way and it works! Just pour a pot of boiling water over a weed and watch it wither and die. Getting rid of weeds will do your patio and lawn good, and it will also do you good.
