The Q&A Archives: weed killer

Question: I used to have a pool in my yard, but now it is gone,so now I have to level everything to put sod down, but in the meantime I have to get rid of all the weeds, the problem is what can I mix in with the soil until I get the sod down and keep the weeds away that will not hurt my small dog

Answer: Under the circumstances, I think simply laying weed block material over the area will keep weeds from growing until you can lay the sod. It's available in rolls and if you just anchor the edges down to keep it from blowing away, it should make a safe barrier for weeds.

Best wishes with your landscaping project!
