How to Get Weeds Under Control in 3 Easy Steps!
There is nothing gardeners’ dislike more than weeds. They look terrible, hurt your plants and come back every season. Preventing weeds sounds difficult, but it doesn’t need to be. With a few simple tricks, you can kiss those pesky weeds goodbye!
Pulling weeds is the first step to their defeat. It can be difficult to remove the entire root every time. Luckily, there are tools that can help. A weed puller helps grab the base of the weed while also giving leverage to pull it up. You can pick up a weed puller from your local garden center for as little as $5. That’s a small price to pay to keep your garden clear of weeds.
If your garden bed is full of small roots, the Rotoshovel's auger can cut through, eliminating the need to remove roots before digging. If a root is too large to cut, the unit will shutoff and blink to notify the user. Then the blockage can be removed manually before continuing to dig!
The best time to weed is at the end of the summer, as their growth rate slows. Pulling weeds will instantly improve the health and appearance of your garden.
The most certain way to remove weeds from your garden is by pulling, but weed killer chemicals still have valuable uses in the garden. The majority of weed killers target the active weed, but do not attack the root. Because the root is unharmed, the weed can reemerge during its next growth cycle. Weed killer can still be effective against smaller weeds because their size allows the weed killer to reach the root and eliminate it for good.
