During peak growing season, spring weeds can take over a fragrant garden or lush lawn in no time at all. Stay ahead of them with regular weeding. The tried-and-true method is to pull them by hand, with the help of a trowel or weeder, but there are other natural options that can also do the job. For instance, try pouring boiling water on weeds to kill them. Just be sure not to splash any hot liquid on neighboring plants, or you'll wash away your greenery—and all your hard work.
