The most important rule of weeding: Don’t leave the roots behind. We all know how hard it is to ensure that the entire weed, including the roots are removed. Weeding often becomes a tiring task, and one that you put off for weeks and weeks, resulting in an unattended garden, which has been taken over and looks unsightly. They also take water and nutrients away from your lawn and other plants and can also survive in tough, dry conditions and reproduce quickly.
The best way to remove weeds is to tackle them while they are young before they flower and set seed, creating future generations of weeds to contend with. Generally hand pulling of weeds in garden beds or use of a non-selective herbicide will take care of your problem in hard to access areas like garden paths.
A selective type herbicide will kill off certain broadleaf weeds while leaving your lawn unaffected, whereas a non-selective herbicide will kill both. It is extremely important to select the right herbicide however, as some broadleaf lawn types can also be affected when treating for weeds. Organic weed control methods are also available.
