Using Vinegar To Kill Weeds Could Be A Mistake
While it remains true that vinegar kills some weeds, particularly young annual weeds, it can also have detrimental effects on the rest of your grass and plants.
When using vinegar in your garden to kill weeds, it will not distinguish between good or bad plants and will damage anything it comes into contact with.
This could be particularly detrimental if a breeze carries the spray to nearby plants or if the soil becomes oversaturated. Rain will also make the whole process even harder.
On top of vinegar's ineffectiveness at killing off the weeds you don't want while damaging the plants you want, it can also damage equipment by staining or corroding finishes.
No matter how much we want to depend on chemical sprays and quick fixes to get the time-consuming chore of weeding done, nothing will ever beat using our hands.
