1. How to control weeds organically
Weeds are the bane of any gardener’s life, they can run rampant if they aren’t taken care of quickly and can be awful to try and get under control – but there is a way to get rid of them safely and organically.
2. Mulch your garden bed
The more densely you plant your garden, the less opportunity a weed has to grow. Weeds love to colonise bare soil – mulching your garden bed is a great way to keep them at bay, as they won’t have an opportunity to seed and germinate. Before you lay your mulch (aim for around 7cm thick), remember to get rid of all the weeds that are already there – a trowel or weeding fork will do the job nicely.
3. Use organic sprays
There are a variety of organic weed killing sprays available at Bunnings. If you’re worried about which is best for the weeds in your garden, just ask one of our friendly Garden staff – they’ll be only too happy to help. Buy them ready-to-use, or mix them up yourself and spray directly onto your weeds. Just remember to follow the directions on the pack and wear the appropriate safety gear.
4. Be vigilant!
The best way to ensure weeds don’t have an opportunity to run rampant in your garden is to be vigilant. Spot it – sort it!
