Weeding Made Easier

No one likes to weed.  It’s uncomfortable and strenuous work, and often can feel as if it is never ending.  However, there are ways you can make the weeding process a little easier.  Here are a few:

– Try using a weed and feed product.  There are many products that work to kill weeds while fertilizing your lawn or plants.  Take a look and see what is available in your garden store.Pulling Weeds

– Keep your plants and lawn healthy.  One great weed prevention method is keeping the plans you intend to live in a certain area healthy with fertilizer, mulch, and more.  Using mulch does double duty – it protects the plants you want while making the soil looser so you can yank out the weeds you don’t want.

– If your yard is really weed-choked, consider starting over.  Talk to your local landscaper about your options.

– Grow another aggressive plant.  There are many types of plants that might be able to out-grow your weeds.  Mint and grass are very aggressive plants, and there are many others that could out perform the weeds that are troubling you.

– Keep your yard aerated.  If your soil is solid, it may be hard for anything except weeds to grow in it.  Additionally, hard soil makes it difficult to yank out the weeds.  Try aerating or amending your soil as much as possible.
