Introduction:Kill the weeds and don't harm the environment with this helpful list. Poisons hurt bees, butterflies, other plants, humans and birds. Think before you kill those weeds. This list will give you 5 topics to review.

  • 01

    Carpet

    When you think of spraying chemicals think of another way to kill weeds. If you have small pieces of carpet lay those pieces down to keep the weeds from growing. You can cover the carpet with some mulch and plant short rooted things on that surface. Don't use the weed killers on the market. Those products are killing our Monarch butterflies, bees and so many birds too. Think before you kill weeds as the landscaping people do. That might be fast to kill the weeds, but it is also fast to kill the natural things we all need to live on this planet. Especially avoid Round up product since that has been proven to have carcinogens for humans in the ingredients.

  • 02

    Landscaping Tarps

    Many landscaping tarps are available to kill weeds. You can space the landscaping tarps just the places you want to kill weeds. Make designs and do all sorts of creative decorative things with landscaping tarps. They are inexpensive to buy. These come in different strengths, colors and sizes. Your options will surprise you. When you choose the landscaping tarps you preserve nature and the natural habitat too. Landscaping tarps permit you to do your yard work in your own time. You can even string out your yard project over seasons and even years if you want to. Look into landscaping tarps as a solid alternative to kill weeds.

    Vinegar Salt Soap Solution

    One easy, cheap and effective way to kill weeds is with a combination solution. Take one gallon of apple cider vinegar and put that in a 5 gallon bucket. Slowly add 1/2 cup of Dawn dish washing liquid. Then add 1/4 cup table salt. Mix this solution until the salt is fully dissolved. Put in a sprayer bottle and spray on your weeds. Do this on a cloudy day and one that will not produce rain or a mist. You don't want to dilute your weed killer. The soap adheres to the leaves of the weeds and the vinegar and salt kill weeds in a matter of 3 or 4 days. Repeat as necessary. Save the left over in gallon containers.

    Pulling Weed Roots

    Have a weed killing party with children wearing gloves and offering a prize for the one with the largest bag of weeds pulled. Top off the day with a cook out or pizza made at home to celebrate the absence of the weeds without putting chemicals into the air, ground and in your lungs. Name the day's event with a luring name and hang a sign at the corner so anyone wanting to participate can. Tell the homeless of the event and see how many hamburgers you will be cooking on the grill when they show up. No stealing from someone else otherwise the hamburgers will not be offered to anyone caught doing that.

  • 05

    Interior Government Options

    Many of the United States have interior centers where you can have consultations with specialists who can recommend alternatives to kill specific weeds. There are places to find these agencies in the phone books and you can go to the Chamber Of Commerce and ask for these groups of people helping communities deal with killing weeds. If you are not certain where to begin your search for these agencies contact the department of interior under United States agencies in your directory. Call the boy scouts and connect with some adult groups like Lyons, American Legion and Elks. Some churches might be helpful too.
