Summer season clicks with a bloom in your gardens, but unfortunately, your flowers and veggies are not the only plants that are so keenly waiting for this time of the year.

This article will help you get rid of garden weed organically, so carry on reading if you need a cure.

Classify Weed

It is somehow a big deal to classify the plants and differentiate which ones of them are useful and which ones are weed. Most of us would agree on the fact that weeds are an unwanted add-on to your beautiful garden or lawn. They invade our tirelessly created landscape and take up most of the nutrients and water, which are meant for our most beloved plants. The actual differentiation between a normal plant and weed is a little bit complicated. So basically, we would consider any unwelcome and annoying addition to our garden a weed. Technically, we can call wild violets a weed, however, some people do appreciate the color and life that they bring to our gardens. So the classification of weed depends entirely upon your perception of any plant or flora.

  1. I did this in my own garden 2 years ago. We haven’t had to weed very much since then. It really does work.
