Most of the time when we’re gardening we just pull the weeds because the soil is soft and we don’t want to risk spraying our precious plants with something that might kill them, even if the spray is all natural. But when it comes to the pesky weeds coming up in the sidewalk, edging, and fence rows? I like to use my all natural weed killer spray made with essential oils!
This spray does a great job of killing the stubborn weeds that can make your yard look untidy. But beware, it works so well that it will kill most anything, so don’t spray it on or near plants you’re wanting to keep!
Eliminating Weeds in Your Garden
In my gardening classes and workshops I get asked about weeding a lot. They use the nutrients in the soil that you want your edible plants to be able to use, and will crowd out your beneficial plants. And they are often hard to eliminate – you have to get the roots or they don’t die.
Growing up we used to have to pick 1,000 weeds before we could go and play so is it any wonder I started looking for a natural, homemade weed killer spray? Obviously we do not want our garden filled with toxic chemicals and herbicides. But that doesn’t mean we can’t help knock out weeds and unwanted plants!
This homemade weed killing spray will help you manage your organic gardening spaces naturally.
