Control Weeds Safely
Nothing is more frustrating than watching garden weeds flourish in the Spring. From menacing crabgrass to the eyesore of dandelions, weeds can be a real problem. In an organic garden, weeds rob nearby plants of water and nutrients while attracting pests. In high-traffic areas like sidewalks, driveways and patios, weed overgrowth quickly makes a property look unkept.
Many people seek a quick fix to tame their frustrations and annihilate weeds. Unfortunately, harsh chemical herbicides pose real risks to our four-legged companions. According to the National Pesticide Information Center, if glyphosate has not had the proper time to dry or leaves a residue, dogs can be at real risk. The contact alone can cause a host of problems not listed on the product label or company website.
At Earth’s Ally, we believe families should not have to choose between products that are safe and products that are effective. We spent 18 months formulating our Weed & Grass Killer using ingredients you can find at home in your kitchen – sea salt, soap and vinegar. The formula is highly effective and safe for high-traffic areas where our dogs play.

Tips & Tricks for Application
When using Earth's Ally Natural Weed & Grass Killer, we recommend incorporating the "Sunshine, Shake & Saturate" mantra for optimum success.
- Sunshine – Apply on a dry, sunny day. Sunlight works with the vinegar to brown weeds in about 3 hours.
- Shake - Shake the product well before use.
- Saturate – Fully saturate the weeds you want to eliminate. If you're switching from a synthetic chemical, you'll need to saturate the weeds more than you would with a synthetic.
With these tips, after two or three days, you will notice weeds are completely brown and shriveled. We’d love to hear how Earth’s Ally is helping you tackle tough weeds.
