“Is there a time when weeding is most effective?”
“What tools do I need to remove these weeds?”
“How can I efficiently remove weeds without them growing back?”
This guide will answer these questions, as well as provide additional tips and tricks on how you can improve your approach to Weed Removal.
While weeding, you may have experienced pulling out half of a weed, leaving chunks of root behind that are difficult to remove. The remaining roots left behind continue to grow and eventually resurface, causing more problems and require removal all over again.
Weeds are naturally stronger than grass, so it’s no surprise that they would be tough to remove permanently. Some weeds have stronger and thicker roots than others, making the removal process harder than some others with thinner roots. Using a shovel to remove these weeds eliminates the possibility of leaving behind chunks of roots, and the weed won’t grow back.
While removing the weeds, it’s possible that seeds might escape the plant when you pull it out of the ground. These seeds will spread around and cause new weeds and future problems, so it’s important that you remove weeds efficiently and correctly rather than sloppily and rushed.
5 steps to eliminate weeds
- Weeding At The Right Time
Soil is moist and loose after rain, then solid in the midday sun. Weeding when the soil is looser will make removal a lot easier and the roots will have less grip.
- Using The Right Tools Correctly
Correctly using the right tools for weed removal is extremely important. Some weeds might require different methods. Using tools will make removal exponentially easier, as well as eliminate the chunks of roots that might be implanted deep in the soil. Before you start weeding, determine what tools will provide the best results.
- Hand Weeder
Hand weeders are extremely useful tools when it comes to removing weeds. They can effectively get underneath most small or medium-sized weeds and allow smooth removal. Hand weeders are very effective, but larger weeds have bigger and stronger roots that can be more difficult to remove completely. Hand weeders are very efficient at getting underneath desired weeds and removing them from the soil.
Spades are useful in times when a hand weeder can’t get the whole weed removed. Sometimes when the roots are thick and established in the soil, spades can effectively remove the weeds permanently. When using a spade, it’s important to dig around the base of the weed carefully so the roots under the soil don’t break. You then need to carefully pull the weed and make sure not to break any part of it. Get Top Quality Weed Removal Services
