How to get rid of weeds with natural solutions

You can get rid of weeds with chemical solutions, but for small gardens and spaces around the house the best solution is the natural solutions that will not harm or and contaminate the air or soil, or water. As a result we have the best solutions and tips that can help you get rid of weeds with natural solutions.

First of all the fight against weeds is on long term and a victory against them is impossible. But you can greatly diminish weeds or make them less resistant if you use this natural solution. Beside these natural solutions you can snatch them, tread them and place dense mesh fences.

Here’s how to get rid of weeds with natural solutions:

White vinegar
Is one of the natural weapons against garden weeds! You can dilute vinegar with water in equal parts, but in extreme cases and for quick results, don’t dilute the vinegar. Pour fresh or diluted vinegar in a spray bottle and sprinkle over the weeds. You must do this at midday, when the sun burns, but never in the after rain days, only when it’s dry. It’s ideal that the place to be dry and in the next 24 hours not to rain. It’s indicated to use vinegar with 9% concentration for guaranteed results.

Salt
It’s another natural and effective solution to get rid of weeds, but you should keep in mind that a larger amount of salt can affect the soil quality, making it totally unsuitable for other plants growth. Salt should be used only in places where no plants grow (alleys, portions slab, the ground under a patio or porch, areas around the foundation). To use salt against weeds, you need a mixture of one part of salt and two parts of water, this concentration is the most effective.
Another solution is to sprinkle salt over weeds effectively. The no rain day rule must be maintained!

Salt and vinegar mixture
In this case you can use diluted vinegar and brine made of water and salt in equal parts. Mix these two solutions, pour it in spray bottle and sprinkle on weeds. It’s very important to do it in a dry period at noon, as the sun enhances the toxic effect of salt and vinegar.

Baking soda
Another good way to get rid of weeds with natural solutions! Prepare a concentrated mixture of baking soda with water (two tablespoons of baking soda in a cup of water). Fill a spray bottle with the solution and apply this mixture by spraying, during the warmest time of the day, between 12.00 and 3.00 p.m.

Hot water
This can also be an option to get rid of weeds. All you have to do is pour boiling water at weed root. This method can be applied at any time.
