Section 3: Whacking Weeds. When weeds do rear their ugly little sprouts, follow the regimen below – the sooner the better. Like unwanted guests, if you allow them to settle in, it’s hard to make them leave! Number 1: PULL. Don’t just yank off the tops; dig up that root system too. Don’t throw weeds on the ground; some varieties easily resprout. Number 2: MOW. Sometimes simply cutting the weeds to the ground will stunt their growth. It’s a good place to start when the patch is large. Follow up with pulling, hoeing, or weed-control treatments. Number 3: HOE. This tried-and-true method chops up those stalks and roots. The more elbow grease, the better. Poison ivy and other menacing plants should never be pulled, chopped, burned, or mowed because then their irritating substances can spread through the air and on clothes. To remove hazardous plants, rely on a defoliating spray or a professional service. There are organic products specially developed to defoliate poison ivy or eliminate moss growth. See our resources section in the manual that accompanied this program for a listing of suppliers.
