Q.Getting Rid Of Snow On The Mountain

Zone 14217 | Jaclynhealy added on August 17, 2020 | Answered

I bought a house with a large garden filled with snow on the mountain and peppermint. What is the best technique in getting rid of both of these weeds and what time of year? Is there an issue with doing it in August rather than the spring?

Both of these are highly invasive and will spread by underground roots AND seeds.

You can try a few things, though.

The first thing to try will be boiling water. My method entails pouring boiling water on the area once a day for a few days. This will, usually, do the trick. Here is an article that will help:


Solarizing soil will be the next thing to try. Here is an article to help you with that:


Last, will be chemical means. You can use your broad spectrum herbicide of choice. This is my least preferred option.
