Weeds. No matter what, they just keep coming back. However, you really do not want your solution to be using chemicals to control these nuisance plants. Just compare it to spraying wax all over your delicious and beautiful birthday cake.
Now that many businesses and homeowners are becoming increasingly concerned about preserving the environment and practicing environmentally friendly landscaping, it is important to use environmentally friendly herbal and biodegradable sprays to control these unwanted plants.
Another way sustainable way to control weeds in your landscape is by going back to the basics. By having healthy soil in your garden you are creating ideal growing conditions which in return will yield less weed growth. To make sure that your lawn soil is healthy:
- Have it aerated in order to keep the soil loose and fertile.
- Water your foundation plants to make sure they grow healthy and to the right size.
- Add compost and sunlight to build a nourishing environment so that your plants can thrive.
