Weeds are a gardener's nightmare. They occupy the best places on the site, deplete the soil, and take away nutrients from cultivated plants.

SSPDaily writes: "Farmers are mercilessly fighting weeds, but they do not always succeed, despite the time, effort, and money spent. However, you don't need special weeding tools to get rid of wild plants. You can use the tools you already have at hand."

Here are 5 simple ways to kill weeds naturally.

Old newspapers

Weeds, like other flora, need sunlight and air to grow. But you can stop their growth with the help of ordinary newspapers!

Put down 10 layers of damp newspapers and then cover them with 3-5 centimeters of mulch. This will kill the adult plants and stop the growth of the young ones.

If the weeds manage to break through to the surface, add more newspapers and a layer of mulch.

Vinegar

Get rid of weeds on the lawn with vinegar, but not ordinary vinegar, but special concentrated vinegar.

Pour it into a spray bottle and spray it directly onto the weeds. Be careful not to harm the cultivated plants you need to save.

Cornmeal

Stop the growth of weed seeds by using cornmeal. Sprinkle it on the soil to stop new weeds from growing.

Keep in mind that it will not kill existing weeds. Flour can only affect germinating seeds.

Many gardeners often use it in the summer to prevent winter annual weeds from growing.

Salt

Salt destroys the roots of weeds and disrupts their water balance.

Start with a salt solution in a ratio of 1:2 to water in a spray bottle. If this doesn't work, make a stronger solution, but be careful, salt can damage the soil.

Weeding by hand

If all else fails, weed the area by hand or with tools. However, manual weeding takes time and can lead to back pain due to constant bending over.
