    How do I get rid of the tenacious weeds taking over my yard?

    My husband and I have been in our new house for a year and I'm super excited about having my own yard.....until I realized that I don't know how to take care of it! Does anyone have a good checklist or strategy to combat tenacious weeds and ground cover to get my gardens started?

    It depends on what kind they are.  If you check with your county extension agency they can help you identify them and tell you how best to deal with them.  Anything you don't want, though, can be mercilessly pulled out by hand to clear areas for lawn, flowers, or veggies.  You could make a separate compost bin for weeds and let the process really do its job on them and then use that to boost your soil's health (but don't put in anything that has gone to seed).

    As opposed to weak and  yielding  weeds? Lime will work. If have pets then choose something safe. Do not use Round-Up, that is an analog of Agent Orange by Monstanto!
