Question

Removing weeds


I need to remove large amounts of weeds so we can plant a flower bed. I've tried pulling but they seem really tough and there is so many. Is there an easier way? Like I said this is a large area, doing it by hand would take days.

Removing weeds


Pitchforks are good for getting under the larger ones and pulling up the majority of the root.

Then get a tiller to finish the job.

Removing weeds


Wait til after its rained or water the area a day before to make pulling the big ones easier.

Or just Spectracide the whole area and wait a day, then till em up.

If you dont Spectracide and just till, the weeds will come back.
