What's the most effective way to control weeds? What's worked for you? Physical? Chemical? Torch? Lotta' weeds not indigenous to here and difficult to get rid here in Hawaii. Any hints appreciated!

Since many weed seeds will live in the soil for many years, constant tilling will kill them off. But you will still have to worry about those that blow in.

Are you looking to control weeds in a
veggie garden or perenial bed?

In a veggie garden, constant tilling, pulling, soil solarization, heavy mulch, will all work. Stay away from weed killers in the vegggie beds.

In the perenial beds, Pulling, weed block and mulch, pre-emergance weed killers once the beds are cleared.

Contact the local Extension office, I'm sure that there is a Master Gardener program locally, where you can get information.
