We talk a lot about weed prevention and use of chemical solutions for weed control, but there are other solutions for getting rid of weeds. You can also “mechanically,” or physically, remove weeds. It’s a terrible job, but sometimes it needs to be done. What do you do if you have giant thistle stalks making your property ugly and unusable? What if giant patches of weeds on your land have already seeded and you want to make sure the seeds don’t get into the soil? What if you just don’t want to use chemicals at all to get rid of weeds? We’re talking mechanical weed removal this week on Eco Lawn Science.
