Weeds: Use baking soda to quickly get rid of ‘stubborn’ patio weeds ‘you can’t get rid of’

2 mins read


Spring is the time where garden growth increases, which means that so does the growth of weeds due to the warmer weather. These pesky plants around paving stones and on patios can make a garden look untidy. If weeds are not removed properly from paving stones, they can continue to grow back for years. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, one expert shared different methods on banishing weeds, including using baking soda.

Martine Le Gassick, a creative director at Stark & Greensmith noted that “harsh chemicals aren’t always an option” when it comes to getting rid of weeds.

She said: “As the garden begins to grow back in spring, so do the nasty garden weeds and harsh chemicals aren’t always an option if you have little ones or pets running around.

“So here are three ways of disposing of weeds without strong chemicals, just make sure to supervise the area until you have cleaned all the ingredients away.”

Martine explained that baking soda is great for removing weeds that appear in “stoned areas”.

“It’s just a simple quick trick to get rid of any small weeds you can see.”

White vinegar is readily available, cheap, and an effective weed killer for paving areas.

It dries out surface weeds on contact.

Gardeners can use white vinegar on younger weeds or vinegar with a higher concentration for older weeds, such as weed killer vinegar, which can be picked up at any garden shop.
