Do you love your garden but find the weeds seem to take over and grow faster than the plants?

Well, this article is all about looking at the safer DIY weed killer alternatives that you can easily make. This first one is self-explanatory and well worth a try. I would imagine you will have to use a bit of trial and error.

The weeds started to turn brown right away. The vinegar-sprayed side, however, showed no change (not that I expected any that fast).
