Kill Dandelions Easily with Salt Video Tip

Dandelions are one ugly flower that will grow no matter what you do. If only the beautiful flowers would grow like dandelions, there would be no need for gardeners in the world. Unfortunately, dandelions grow where you do not want them to grow, and if you have ever tried to remove them, you know how difficult they are to remove. Dandelions have roots that go deep into the soil, and if you snap the root while trying to pull out the weed from your garden, it actually makes matters worse: the dandelions will only grow back in full force.

If you want an easy way to kill off dandelions without damaging the rest of your lawn, try a little salt. All you need to do is put about a teaspoon of salt directly onto the base of the dandelion. Make sure to do this on a dry day when there is no chance of rain and the soil is nice and dry. The salt will work its way into the soil and kill the roots of the dandelion. The biggest problem with this method is that it takes a while to do. You should also be careful not to spread the salt over too big of an area, since it can kill other plants as well.

The good thing about using salt to kill dandelions is that it actually works. It will go down and kill the plant for good, making the dandelion go away forever. Most weed killers will not do this. Using salt is also very cheap and is kind to the environment.

Once you have applied the salt, you might want to keep an eye on it to watch the dandelion go away, and also to make sure that the salt does not blow away. If it rains or the sprinklers wash the salt away, you will have to pour more on. Just keep doing this and soon you will have a dandelion-free area.
