4 Natural Ways to Get Rid of Unwanted Grass & Weed

These four natural remedies could help you eradicate unwanted grass and weed in the garden. Grass can take away valuable nutrients from your garden bed so take action soon.

How to Get Rid of Grass

Soil Solarization

1. Saturate Grassy Area with Vinegar
Vinegar can be used, instead of harmful chemicals, to kill grass. Vinegar, however, can kill other plants so do not spray it near any plants you want to keep.

2. Conduct Soil Solarization
Solarization is the process of using the sun to kill unwanted grass and weed. The best time of year to try this is during the summer. You will need to cut the grass to a very short height then cover the grassy area with clear plastic. After two or three months, the grass will eventually die due to the increase in soil temperature.

3. Add a Thick Layer of Mulch
Adding mulch is a great way to turn an area into a fertile, nutrient-rich area. Adding mulch on top of a grassy area can also eradicate grass and weed by restricting access to sunlight and air.

4. Pour Boiling Water
Boiling water is a temporary solution to killing grass and weed. You will, however, want to move on to one of the three above solutions as the unwanted grass may grow back after a few days.
