Even careful gardeners know that unwanted weeds will creep into their garden. It can be a challenge to control them in an environmentally safe way. How do you control weeds in the garden? This month The Rootsy Community comes together to bring their best ideas to the table. We call it CSA, Community Supported Answers! Leave your comments in the post.
Every area of the country has its share of noxious weeds. Those pesky plants that are so hard to eradicate that you might be considering chemical herbicides to get rid of them. In my neck of the woods, its an invasive grass called Johnsongrass, a fast-growing perennial that can grow up to 7 feet tall. This grass is able to spread easily by a system of rhizomes which are horizontal underground roots and are almost impossible to keep out of garden beds. Control is accomplished by tilling strategies and agricultural grazing.
Here’s the topic of the month:
