Going Green While Getting Rid of Weeds
Fall can be a great time to get rid of pesky weeds. Some products can do the trick, but are not very good on the environment. Joe Welsh works at Home Depot in Abilene, and recommends Eco Smart, it’s organic and made out of corn. One of his favorite weed tools is called a hound dog, because it scratches things and digs weeds up out of the soil. To prevent the weed from coming back, make sure to get it at the root. According to Welsh, you can still buy products with chemicals in them, so just make sure to air on the side of caution.
