This past spring, Wilmington had a bit of a dry spell. Local utilities were asking residents to water wisely and limit their use. When we finally got rain, it seemed like all of the plants were playing catch-up — including the weeds in my yard. I usually weed by hand, but it was overwhelming. Time to pull out the weed killer.

I don’t know about you, but with kids and pets running around, I’m always trying to avoid using harmful chemicals around my house. This is why I use a simple 3-ingredient weed killer with trusted elements.
