Past Articles Library | Organic Weed Killer | Weed Aside


The rainy season is upon us and very soon, the weeds are going to be out of control.

Instead of reaching for Roundup or Brush-B-Gon try a natural weed killer: Weed Aside.

It's a contact spray, meaning it will only kill what it touches. It won't translocate down to the roots like a systemic spray, and while it can be effective with one application, sometimes you may have to apply it a couple of times throughout the year to keep perennial weeds under control.

The good news is that Weed Aside naturally kills weeds within hours of spraying. It really gets rid of weeds fast, and it can be used in perennial flower beds, vegetable gardens and even around fruits!

But what's in it? It's made up of a blend of naturally occurring fatty acids, that kills weeds and then quickly decomposes in the soil. It only affects leaves which come into direct contact with it, so you can use it to control weeds around fruit and vegetable crops as well as broadleaf weeds and annual grassy weeds, wherever they grow: in paving, paths, garden beds.

It won't stain brick or paving, and you can sow seed or set out transplants in treated areas five days after application.

We tested this product on oxalis weeds. We applied it at noon, and 5 hours later, the weeds were completely dead and have not come back since. So before you try using chemical sprays, try an organic one, you just might be pleasantly surprised!

When to Water

If you can, it is always best to water early in the morning. This allows the plant's leaves and flowers to dry off as the day warms up.

If you water at night, the plant stays wet for hours in the cool, which are prime conditions for fungi and other problems to set in.
