Eco-Friendly Weed Killer to Promote Your Families...
Using an eco-friendly weed pre-emergent is the responsible thing to do for your families health. I can remember some time ago I had one of these liquid lawn fertilizer companies apply fertilizer to my lawn for a summer. They would put up signs to keep children and pets off the lawn for 7 days. I was horrified, but I didn't know better at the time. I'm sure that these companies have improved or were forced to improve their process but still there had to be a better way.
After much research on my behalf, I found that the organic route was a much better choice, especially since we have allergy problems in my family. The best solution for organic pre-emergent control of the weeds is corn gluten. This is a natural substance that is available from your local farm and garden store. It is also sold under many brand names. Be sure you check the ingredients on the packaging to make sure.
How does corn gluten work? Corn gluten is a pre-emergenct herbicide, so it works by inhibiting the feeder roots of the emerging weedlets. It also does very well against germinating seeds only and will not affect established plants. What this means to you is that you can spread this on your lawn in early spring and you can also control the spring dandelion breakout and fertilize at the same time. It also controls most broad-leafed weeds and they are annual plants and depend soley on seeds for germination in the spring.
Also, apply it after your garden is established and you have an organic weed-control there as well. Before any application clear the bare ground of any weeds, sprinkle the corn gluten per instruction and water it in.
Your yard will be safe for you and your kids to enjoy the entire year without any worry of chemicals getting into there bodies.
