Yikes! Yes, I’m killing weeds and grass… well in certain areas. We have a fairly long gravel driveway and each summer grass and other pesky weeds like to make the center of it their home. It’s not so pretty. We don’t like using harsh chemicals, and in the past, I found that they weren’t even always that effective, so why bother?!
The solution (as it seems to be with many simple & thrifty ways of doing things) is vinegar! Plain old white vinegar. I pulled out our garden sprayer and stocked up with 4 gallons of cheap store brand vinegar (about $2 a jug). If you don’t have a sprayer you can pick up a 1 gallon or 2 gallon fairly cheap on Amazon.com. Mine happens to be the 2 gallon size.
Get out your sprayer, pour a gallon of vinegar in, pump and get to spraying. I chose to do this on two dry, hot days. The grass was sure to be thirsty, so it seemed to make sense and would hopefully work fast (it did!)
Be sure to spray only where you want to kill the grass, the vinegar will kill everything you spray. At the edges of your driveway be sure to spray in a straight line, unless you like zig-zagged edges. You can see in the photo below where I sprayed just earlier today. The grass is already dying off and the edge is pretty clean.
