‘Can instantly kill them’: ‘Effective’ methods for getting rid of ‘pesky’ garden weeds


Weeds can be a problem all year round, with annual weeds germinating at the end of spring. Luckily, there are different methods gardeners can try to help get rid of weeds as well as prevent them coming back, including aerating the soil in the garden.

Genna Lorraine, gardening expert at Fantastic Services, explained: “To manage weeds, mulch the soil.

“It blocks sunlight from weed seeds, inhibits their growth and helps retain moisture.”

March is the perfect time to mulch and is one of the best things gardeners can do to their garden for spring.

The expert said: “Mowing the lawn can also be an effective deterrent.

“You’ll want to keep an eye on not only the edges of your lawns but also around posts and fencing.

“Watch for weeds near planting beds too.”

Another effective way of getting rid of “pesky weeds” is to aerate the soil.

This is because the majority of weeds grow and flourish when the soil is compacted which restricts water and air.

This prevents nutrients from getting into the soil.

To aerate the soil, gardeners can simply use a tool to poke holes into the ground, often using a plug aerator or spike aerator.

This job can also be done on the lawns to help prevent water logging and allow nutrients to reach the soil after winter.

The expert continued: “If you have many weeds that won’t respond to other methods, use a weed burner.

“It connects to a propane tank and burns the weeds out, removing them from the lawn for good.”
