The main problems that block the growth of plants in a garden are diseases, rodents and weeds. To remedy the latter, it is not necessary to use chemicals, as you know that chemicals cause long-term health problems. There are natural ways to control weeds effectively. To find out about these natural methods, read this article.

Eliminating weeds with salt

Salt is a natural product that can be used as a natural herbicide. So, to weed the garden with salt, there are two main ways to proceed. In the first method, put large grains of salt in the different places to be weeded. After that, you can sprinkle with water or simply let the rain do the job. A very important tip is that the water collected at the bottom of the moisture-absorbing trays can be recycled and used as real herbicides. In the second method, instead of simply pouring salt into the areas to be weeded, prepare a weed-killing liquid with one litre of water. Melt about 200g of salt in this liquid and start spraying the weeds with the well homogenised mixture. The herbicidal action of the salt water can be enhanced by adding white vinegar to the mixture.

Controlling weeds with baking soda

Baking soda is also an effective way to remove weeds from your garden, so instead of salt you can make use of baking soda. There are two options for doing this, just like with salt weeding. Pour the bicarbonate of soda on the weeds to be weeded and then proceed with the watering. You can also let the rain do its work, but it is recommended to water immediately so as not to let the wind disperse the bicarbonate. The other option is to dissolve about 200g of bicarbonate in one litre of weed-killing liquid and then water.
