Summertime means weeding time for most gardeners. While the old methods of hand pulling and hoeing are still the most effective, sometimes you'd just like to spray those weeds to get rid of them. This is especially true of weeds in a sidewalk, patio, or driveway, where they can be hard to dislodge. If you're leery of using chemical herbicides, there are several organic herbicides worth trying.
One of the newest products is Perfectly Natural Weed & Grass Killer, which uses two well-known organic weed killers: clove oil and vinegar. This fast-acting (dieback begins within 1 hour after spraying) formula is safe for the environment and effective on a range of weeds, such as dandelions, clover, chickweed, plantain, and annual bluegrass. Perennial weeds require a repeat application in 3 to 5 days. The product comes in two ready-to-spray sizes so there's no mixing.
