Depends on the climate. This is not an environmentally-friendly way to kill weeds.

Salt buildup will prevent a large number of plants from being able to live in that soil. It can take a long time for the salts in the soil to disperse, especially in climates without much rainfall and on flat areas.

You can, but keep it watered. Early autumn is generally thought to be the best time to plant grass in the Northeastern US. Fall is definitely a better option for you if your lawn has high sun exposure.

There are a number of ways to kills weeds. The best method and hardest to do, is to pull the weeds from the ground keeping the roots intact. This prevents the plants from continuing to grow and from spreading more seeds. Another method is to use chemical weed killer you can buy at most hardware stores. They come in power or liquid form, some of which is safe to use with grass, others will kill all plants. To prevent weeds from reoccuring make sure to remove all the weeds and then place down some mulch to prevent the seeds from reaching the soil, but mainly to keep the moisture in and protect the plants you intend to keep.

How do you weed a myrtle ground cover?

From personal experience with a 300 sf area: Before planting, spray the area with grass and weed killer, hopefully one that is environmentally friendly. Then plant the myrtle and mulch between the plants. The few weeds that subsequently come through are picked by hand , when the weeds are young before they become established. Keep at it until the myrtle fills in, after which there should be even fewer weeds coming through, which can be picked by hand.

How to get rid of weeds?

Lawn care can be an involved process, whether the property extends miles or even a couple of feet. On top of the standard mowing and planting, sometimes weeds may become a problem for the caregiver. How can somebody hope to get rid of weeds? 1. Believe it or not, when a lawn is mowed it helps get rid of weeds at the same time. People tend to cut the grass to keep it looking fresh and clean, while avoiding high levels of growth on their lawn. When this is done, it can also push back the chances that weeds will have time to develop and thus manifest themselves, causing a nuisance. Remember, however, that in order for this to work, the grass must be cut frequently. In addition, grass clippings that have been strewn about from the chore should immediately be moved and bagged, so that seeds from the weeds cannot spread. If neglected, this could defeat the purpose entirely. 2. In addition to mowing, the caregiver should also consider removing the weeds by hand. It may seem simple, but the fact is, it works and continues to be practiced. This works best for a small weed problem, such as in small gardens, as it would otherwise take a long time to accomplish. When pulling the weeds out, keep in mind that it is important that the roots of the weeds be pulled with them. If not, only part of the problem will be gone; the weeds will simply grow again at a later time. Getting rid of weeds is just one on a list of things people must work on to keep their lawns and gardens healthy and attractive. Depending on how bad the infestation is, it could take some time to get rid of them properly; however, the end result is certainly worth the effort. Nobody should give up, no matter how frustrated they may get; should it come to that, they can seek assistance. By asking friends and family members for help, it certainly does not have to be done alone.
