Spring Garden Tips
Hardscape Weed Control

Tired of cutting or pulling weeds out of the cracks in your patio and walkway pavers? Try some of the new more eco-friendly weed killers that use vinegar, soaps and plant oils to burn the tops off unwanted plants. Once the tops die the weeds can more easily be removed. Repeat applications are needed as new weed seeds sprout and perennial weeds grow new tops from their roots that are not killed by these products. These products are good solutions for those seeking a more eco, pet and child friendly weed control option. As always be sure to read and follow label directions.
