Weeds on paving stones are a common problem that probably all landowners have encountered. Surprisingly, harmful plants are very hardy and can grow even among asphalt.

There are many ways to control weeds, but some of them can harm both nature and your health. That's why Interia Kobieta has shared an eco-friendly way to help clean up your paving stones.

The most effective way to deal with unwanted plants is vinegar. It is not only environmentally friendly, but also quite affordable.

How to prepare a weed killer

Choose a product with a concentration of 10 to 20 percent. Then mix it with water in a 2:1 ratio, pouring the vinegar into the water, not vice versa.

Then pour the solution into a spray bottle so that you can conveniently spray it on the weeds.

Method and rules of application

For the vinegar to be most effective, choose a sunny and dry day when the temperature is above 15 degrees.

Although a mixture of vinegar and water is completely safe, experts also recommend conducting a test on a small piece of paving stones first to make sure that it will not change under the influence of the acid.

Spray the solution on the unwanted plants. Some of them will start to wilt before your eyes, and some will die over time. If you notice that the weeds are recovering quickly, start treating them regularly once a week. After two or three such treatments, you will see a noticeable difference in the amount of unwanted vegetation.

It is best to start working in the afternoon. Also, do not treat weeds after rain or when there is morning dew on the plants, as moisture will dilute the solution and make it less effective.

Also, avoid spraying on windy days. Otherwise, there will be a risk that the vinegar solution will get not only on weeds, but also on other plants.
