Help! My lawn and flower garden are full of weeds!

The lawn is full of dandelions and weeds are crowding out my flowers! I've been busy and we've neglected it. What 's the best weed killer or plan to get my yard under control? Thanks!

  • I would use a grown cover or at home depot something to cover grown a cloth type of thing then mulch. Here is a you tube link

  • Look up natural weed killers. There are varying recipes using white vinegar. Much better for everyone instead of putting chemicals into the land.

  • best approach is a dandelion puller tool. It is like a metal stick with a forked tongue.
    There is not much you can spry to kill dandelions and not get it on your flowers

  • We use Roundup in a few small spots in our yard but other than that I constantly go around and pull weeds getting all the root. It is really the only way to get rid of them. I agree that the tool mentioned above is great......it's super easy and fast. If you have a large area of weeds you can cut them back and then put down landscaping fabric plus a heavy layer of mulch. But if you have flowers among the weeds you really need to pull weeds individually. GL
