Killing Grass With Vinegar

Anonymous added on January 18, 2011 | Answered

My backyard has five feet of land which is full of grass. Recently I used vinegar on the grass per your tips on your website. The problem is that I don't get enough sunlight in my backyard. Will the vinegar still kill the grass? How often do I need to spray the grass with vinegar?

The acid in the vinegar is what kills the plant more than anything. If it is a tough plant, it may take several applications. I would apply it every few days until they are dead. If there are no plants in that area that you wish to save, I would recommend boiling water. Pouring this on the plants will kill them instantly.
