Weeds – Organic Prevention Products

Q: Are there organic weed preventers you would suggest rather than dumping chemicals on ground?

A: I’d love to find a non-chemical weed preventer but there simply doesn’t seem to be an effective one for our part of the world. Corn gluten meal is sold as a pre-emergent but it is marginally effective under Georgia conditions. The best weed control is a thick and healthy lawn. In addition, mowing regularly, at the right height, and fertilizing properly helps deter weeds.
