Simple household baking soda may be all you need for your weed problems, especially if you want to kill weeds growing near decorative plants you’d like to keep. Baking soda is a natural product that will not contaminate your property or landscaping and is safe for the environment.
Whether you’re putting down new paving or refreshing old paving, there’s a ton of ways to deal with weeds growing between them. Once you’ve already got a weed problem, it can be difficult to take care of, but there are several ways to resolve the problem in the beginning.
Method #1: Baking Soda
Like the baking soda and vinegar methods, this is effective since salt dries out the plants to the roots and has a lasting effect.
Method #2: Vinegar
To prevent weeds from growing in your paving, you can pour baking soda all over the paved area and then sweep it into the cracks. You should re-apply every four to six weeks. This method works the fastest during spring and fall but can still work during summer.
