Weedkiller Alternatives.

Manufactured weedkillers can harm the environment as well as killing weeds - and some are quite expensive too.

As an alternative, try boiling water. Boiling water will kill weeds if you pour it directly onto them. Take care not to get the water on the plants you want to keep in your garden though, as it will affect those too.

This method is especially useful for paving cracks (on a patio, for example) as long as all the plants between the paving slabs are weeds.
