8 Homemade Weed Killers

1. Pull Them

 

We know: Duh. But if you’ve ever tried it, you know that some weeds are much tougher to pull than others — particularly dandelions and other weeds of the taproot variety. To make it easier, water the area directly around the weed or pull them after a rainstorm, when the ground is softer. Insert a knife or screwdriver alongside the deep root to loosen it before pulling.
