Electrical weed killing - the future?
« on: August 26, 2015, 11:43:22 AM »
I recently came across this - a new way to kill weeds without chemicals and one where the plant cannot evolve any resistance.  The company are running a Kickstarter campaign to help them ultimately bring this technology to our local garden centers.  Check it out and back them up!

That's an interesting concept, but I still find the old manual weeding tools more useful ;D
I keep my lawn clean with the following dandelion killer tools.

there's also a hot water/foam one https://www.weedingtech.com/foamstream-weed-control/

up here in Newcastle upon Tyne, there is an organisation call NGSI- Newcastle green space initiative http://www.ngsi.org.uk/ . One guy called John who spends a lot of time hassling the council not to use roundup on public land. As you can imagine, they are completey backwards and prefer to poison things, though John did manage to get them to go to a demo of it in use.

The group gets the council to allow them to wild plant public spaces such as parks etc
