Noxious weeds fall into 3 distinct classes depending on how wide spread they are. There are many different varieties in the Northwest that include bighead knapweed and common tandy. Depending on which list they are on the weeds are either considered rare, partially spread, or common. Many are banned from importation, and common varieties you may be familiar with include fragrant water lily. Lists contain both aquatic and non-aquatic species.

Natural weed control

Whether you plan on hydroseeding your lawn or using sod, ensure that you use a local company with healthy mixtures and growing practices. When you use the right seed for your climate, you end up with a stronger lawn in Seattle. This is because the grass will take deeper root. One of the keys to crowding out weeds it to ensure your grass gets a strong foothold. When the grass roots run deep and reach water that weeds cannot, the weeds end up naturally dying and are unable to get a the foothold they need to survive.

  • Cornmeal – Cornmeal keeps all seeds from germinating. So once your lawn is safely established it can be used for natural weed control before the weeds start growing.
  • Vinegar – Vinegar can also be used early in the morning as a natural weed killer. You don’t want to use it too often in order to avoid soil contamination.
  • Boiling water – Boiling water is safe and effective for weeds. It may require multiple treatments for deep rooted weeds.
