You can rid yourself of weeds the old fashioned way—pulling them by hand—if you're vigilant. Wear a dedicated pair of gardening gloves for the task to avoid inadvertently transferring seeds elsewhere. Good gardening tools like a claw or sharp trowel can help you loosen the weed roots from the soil ﬁrst. Pulling a weed completely out by the root is the only way to ensure it will not return.
