|For many years, my backyard has been fallow with only weeds growing.I've tried extended control weed products but it isnt' making a dent in the weed population. I would like to plant/landscape but I first need to address the weeds. Is there a reliable method of finally getting rid of the weeds? I've heard of using corn gluten...any suggestions? Thanks!

|Pre emergent herbicides such as corn gluten meal will keep the weed seeds from sprouting so it's a good product to apply. Weed seeds can lay dormant for years so there's no easy solution. You'll need to use a pre emergent on a regular basis to keep those seeds from germinating. Wish I had an easier solution to share!
