Vinegar as a weed killer

Anonymous added on June 6, 2015 | Answered

I assume that vinegar will kill the lawn grass as well as the weeds in the lawn. Is this correct? I am looking for lawn weed killer that is safe for pets. Are there any? Thank you.

Yes, vinegar will pretty much kill any plant that it comes into contact with, including grass, so spot spraying is advised to prevent 'keeper plants' from being affected. Vinegar is also safe for pets. This article has other pet-friendly ideas for weeds: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/homemade-pet-friendly-weed-killer.htm
