Weeding by hoeing is one of the best ways to control weeds in the flowerbed or home vegetable garden. Hoeing should be done when weeds are small. Cut the tops off by shaving the surface or cutting barely under the surface. Once the tops have been cut down you can apply a mulch consisting of several thicknesses of folded newspapers (to block sunlight) and top it off with several inches of compost or other organic mulch material. This should keep the grasses from returning.
