I have a small back yard, and all you see is weeds. I want to kill the weeds, turn the yard, and then plant new grass seed. What kind of homemade weed killer should I use to kill the weeds before growing new grass?

You should probably use a barrier method because any chemical will probably affect the new grass seed. Use black plastic to cover the weeds so they don't get light. I've also heard of using clear plastic, which "cooks" the weeds. There is more info if you google the topic online. (08/31/2009)
Thank you, Merlene, for your answer. I'm going to do just that. What a great idea. (09/02/2009)
