Weeds are annoying for many different reasons, and devoting your time and energy to eliminating them from your property only to find that they crop up again a few weeks later is just one of the annoyances. Although there is no quick fix for permanently driving weeds from your lawn and garden, there are a handful of tactics you can incorporate into your weed control approach to make it more effective.
Use Mulch Mulch is fast becoming a gardener’s staple, and for good reason. Mulch helps plant soil retain moisture at times when water is scarce, and it hinders weed growth by blocking the sun from sprouting weeds and attracting insects that eat weed seeds.
Weed When Wet Pulling weeds from dry soil is tough. Uprooting weeds in their entirety is nearly impossible. San Jose receives plenty of rain, so save your weed killing efforts or a day when the soil is moist, when weeds can more easily be pulled out from the root up. If you find that there are some stubborn plants you just cannot get at the roots of, at least cut off their heads to prevent them from spreading their seeds.
Use Weeding Tools Weeding equipment is designed to assist with the weed pulling and killing process. If you own a weed eater or can rent one from an equipment supplier near your home, you will find that you can weed more quickly and more effectively than you ever could with just your hands and a pair of gloves.
Concentrate Efforts on Active Weeds The weeds that are thriving are those that are causing the most problems for your garden. By digging up dormant weeds, you may stir other weed seeds to life. Instead, focus your efforts on active weeds.

Whether you’re hoping to sell your house or you simply love to look out a lush landscape, a good lawn is important. A homeowner’s job is never finished; once you finish your initial landscaping project, you need to perform regular maintenance to keep your lawn in top shape. You don’t have to invest in new equipment to get the job done. You can also rent tools that will help you keep your lawn looking gorgeous. Here are some essential pieces of equipment you’ll need for your lawn work:
Lawn Mower Neatly trimmed grass is at the foundation of any beautiful lawn; an overgrown lawn can impact the overall appeal of your landscaping. Also, keeping your grass short discourages pests like termites and rodents from creeping closer to your home. A power push motor is ideal for most lawns.
Edger When it comes to the edges of your lawn, it’s hard to get clean lines when working with a mower. An edger allows you trim the grass at each edge of your lawn, making your yard look neat and even. You can use an edger where your lawn meets the street, your driveway, or mulch beds.
Weed Eater Weeds are bound to spring up in your lawn, and if left untreated, they can overrun your property in a hurry. Weed eaters, also called weed whackers, allow you to tackle weeds quickly, saving you the trouble of manually plucking them. You can use a weed eater throughout your lawn and in garden and mulch beds, where weeds can also be an issue.
