Landscaping and Weed Plants
In the Bible, after Adam and Eve partook of the forbidden fruit, God cursed the land that it would bring forth weeds. It says, “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”(Genesis 3:19)
Weeds are a part of life, but having a good strategy makes them much easier to deal with. Most people don’t love to weed and procrastinate. Then, when their yard totally looks like it needs weeding it can take a long time to weed.
The best strategy is to weed when they are young seedlings. You can use a hoe and with little effort eliminate the majority of the weeds. If you weed once a month, with a hoe, it will take very little time. The most important weeding is early spring when water is abundant and seedlings are just sprouting.
Weed Killer Applications
Again, small weeds are much easier to eradicate than large weeds. If you start out while weeds are small, you can kill them with one light application. Large weeds take much more poison and even several applications. The main purpose of weed control is that it takes less time than hand weeding. If you have a large pasture or field that has got out of hand, this may be the only viable option.
