What alternatives are there to spraying Roundup?
« on: May 04, 2009, 08:27:27 AM »
Please help me with an alternative to toxic sprays! My husband and I recently excavated our sloping block so that we could make it more usable for growing vegies, planting the rest out with Native Australian plants and having a space for us and our two children to enjoy. However after excavating we have had our autumn rain bring a plethora of weeds. The soil is obviously very fertile and weeds are taking over. We have not had a chance yet to plant and my husband (who is not very organic-minded) wants to just spray the whole block which horrifies me. Not only do I have concerns about the environment but also my children will play here and I want to grow organic vegetables too. Does anyone have an idea so that I may deter my husband from going spraying mad? :o

I am not sure on how you can do the Whole block but we use a mixture of pizza boxes and sugar cane mulch (about 10cm thick) though blackberry vines I am not sure what can kill that as I have a problem with that too.

Another method you might like to try on smaller soft-leafed weeds is a spray of vinegar.
