I have to agree with sotongeoff. I am trying my best to be organic and have spent a lot of time hand-weeding our garden. I have hand dug, sieved, applied cardboard mulch, you name it.
A local landscape gardener who is organic-friendly said that in his opinion there is NO alterative to spraying off the weeds on our gravel drive and under the fences etc. twice a year with glyphosphate. Having spent a year NOT doing that, I'm afraid to say i have to agree with him.
As regards lawn weeds, I recently bought one of those Fiskears gizmos for pulling out plantains, dandelions etc. and they seem to work quite well, but you will end up with a few holes which you might have to fill in.
