We didn't have any weeds last year, but this year we have a ton already. We were considering using True Green, but I'm a little concerned about pesticide usage. Any eco-friendly ways of getting rid of weeds? It would take forever to pull them by hand as we have a large yard.

I've read about a vinegar and dish soap combination but I've never tried it myself. We just sort of let our 5 acres live naturally (read: weed city!) It's too overwhelming to try to tackle.

We have the same issue, had some weed control put on our flower beds around the house, but don't think I want to do the yard this year. I have heard about the vinegar solution, not sure exactly what else is in it though? I'm hoping our yard doesn't get overwhelmed by weeds

Yup, Google vinegar weed control. It doesn't kill them all, but it does help.

We do not use any chemicals on our lawn...they are just too scary to me!

Will it kill the grass, too? I want to kill the weeds, but not the grass.
