Re: Invasion of the Pigs (Weeds, that is)
If you are willing to use an organic pesticide, there are quite a few products that are based on thyme oil. I am planning to use one of these next week to kill a neighbor’s lawn in order to reseed with a slow growing grass seed that won’t need to be mown every week.
If organic pesticides aren’t an option and you have the time, you could try getting a bunch of plastic drop clothes and earth staples and solorizing the soil, either after mowing short or plowing under.
I am also planning to re-do my own lawn this fall with low mow grass seed but for various reasons (toddler, un-even ground, small yard) I am planning on roto-tilling and then solorizing with clear plastic before re-seeding. Let me know if you are interested in which works better and I will post the results.
