Get Rid of Broadleaf Weeds

Unless you can dig deep enough to remove the entire root of a broadleaf weed, they grow back in a matter of weeks. Fall is a great time to treat these weeds as they are beginning to go dormant for the winter. You can use toxic weed killers to get rid of them but the safe natural way is to pour one-third to one-half cup of distilled white vinegar on the very center of the weed. Do not water it in. The acid action of vinegar kills the weed down to the tip of the root.
