Killing Grass in Rock Ground Cover?

My back yard is landscaped with rocks. Grass has grown through huge patches. How can I kill the weeds/grass? I need a home made remedy. Some kind of solution that I can make at my house. I am not well off.

If you have the liquidation store "Big Lots" in your area, each spring & summer (& sometimes the rest of the year) they sell their own brand of Landscaping Cloth. It's only $3.99 for a 4 foot x 20 yard roll (It's cost twice that much at Home Depot). If you can remove the rocks, & put Landscaping Cloth down with your rocks on top of it, your effort will be rewarded! If not, then you can use Plain Boiling Water & if THAT doesn't work, then use household vinegar & if THAT doesn't work, then use the stronger Vinegar you can buy where they sell Plant nursery supplies.


REMEMBER, start with the least toxic, then work your way up to the strongest. Whatever you pour on the ground, ends up in our ground water!

Landscape cloth will do the trick but do not buy from Big Lots. Its best to invest in the better, thicker cloth. We used the cheap cloth and we have weeds. We used the better in a different location and have none for 3 years now.

I pour used cooking oil over areas in order to kill unwanted weeds and grass. Works like a charm.

The least expensive way I have found is to mix 1 cup of regular table salt with 1 gallon of water. You can buy a package of salt for less than 50 cents most places and it does not matter if it is iodized or not.


Just pour it on ANY plant you want to kill - grass, weeds, etc.

Editor's Note: Just a reminder that salt will also kill your soil and it can take years for it to recover and allow something to grow there.

You can cover the area with salt rocks and water it down and cover it down with large garbadge bags or any kind of plastic you can hold the plastic down with a few of your rocks or make home made stakes.

Buy a lawn mower to cut your grass.
