  • Non Toxic Grass Killer Ideas

    I would have put Weed Killer, but it's not weeds I have issues with. There are small areas that I have put Landscape Timber around the perimeter that I would like to do something decorative with. In preparation, I have put down weed fabric and put down mulch to naturally get rid of the grass on top. Months later, there seem to be random areas where a few blades of grass are growing through.
    I took it up and recovered with cardboard, then mulch. Same thing. It is becoming a headache. Because I have pets, I would prefer to do something natural/non-toxic. Does anyone have any recommendations for something I can put into my pump sprayer? Have tried the vinegar/salt/dawn liquid, with same results, or should I say LACK OF RESULTS. ☹

    first and foremost better method is, boiling water, boil the water, and pour it into grass blades, it will kill them, it is good for small patches, second is to cover the area with plastic sheet, heat within the area make the plastic to will it

      I will try the boiling water. When you speak of the plastic sheet, do you mean the rolls you find at a home store to tape down for painting? I know those come in all types of thicknesses.

          I have just seen on local Home store site that they have some type of cork that you can spread over a portion of the lawn. Was thinking about cutting to size, lay down and cover with mulch, stones, or pavers. Not that I don't want to try the plastic, but I wouldn't want to dig it up again, where as cork, I believe will eventually bio-degrade. Would that work?

            but if you are looking for long lifetime solution you have to reconsider, being biodegradable, it needs replacement anytime, also it is more costly than plastic

              Thank you for your input. When it does come to cost, I have considered it, but it makes more sense to me since that is something that I won't have to worry about constantly taking up and replacing as it does have biodegradable properties. I just see it as less work, that's all. It has become more of a headache as I would have to revisit that area of my yard over and over as opposed to moving on. As long as it works, you know?
