Keeping the Weeds Out of Your Lawn and Garden
One of the most important threats is the fight against weeds on the lawn and in the garden. In fact, there is no other way around this, because wherever you grow plants that are worth keeping, weeds are sure to follow them. Even the generous use of chemical and organic herbicides and tissues to fight weeds is not a reliable protection against the penetration of these unwanted plants. In this case, the best plan of attack is to snatch these weeds by hand.
If you pull by hand, there are a number of special methods that can prevent the return of certain weeds.
First of all, you need to get to know the grass better and more personally. When you are going to shoot, take the base of the grass in the place where it enters the ground. This will prevent weeds from rotting and leaving the roots. If you have weeds that are hard to pull, consider buying a weeding tool. Sticking the fork along the length of the root sufficiently baking the soil for complete removal.
It should also be remembered that the more grass, the more difficult it is to pull out. This is due to the fact that the root system can be very long and securely hold the top of the plant in place. To get rid of weeds, pre-pour the lawn or garden to moisten the soil; so the root will be easier to slip out of the ground.
Also consider weeding early in the afternoon when it’s cool outside. Noon weeding is a sure way to deliver unpleasant feelings. The idea is to develop a habit of regularly pulling out weeds during the week, so do so when you are most comfortable. If you have a compost heap, throw weeds into it that will soon die, and turn them over. The heat released by composting organic matter quickly kills weeds and any seeds contained in them.
The last advantage of manual weed removal is that you can approach all other plants. This gives you the opportunity to notice problems that you might not notice otherwise. This can help improve the health and well-being of your lawn and garden as you work to correct any problems you pay attention to.
Once you’ve eliminated most of your weed problem, it’s time to start looking for ways to minimize them. In the garden and on flowerbeds this can be achieved by applying a thick layer of mulch. This not only prevents weeds from sprouting, but also helps to retain moisture and return organic nutrients to the soil.
If you have a huge problem with weeds, you can use chemicals to quickly resolve the situation. They act quickly and can effectively destroy large amounts of weeds. If you use such products, be careful as they are harmful and can damage or kill the desired plants. Alternatively, consider using a more organic herbicide made from conventional household products.
To protect the lawn and garden from weeds, first you need a little time and patience. Once they’re dealt with effectively, keep them away from your landscape – it’s little more than pulling out those few that sprout once or twice a week.
