Every gardener aims to stop unnecessary competition between their plants and unwanted weeds, and this can be done using different weed control methods. Everyday household items like salt, vinegar, and even newspaper can outright kill weeds without wasting time.

Many gardeners use many herbicides for weed control, but for the sake of this article, you will learn the various traditional or conventional method of weeding.

Mulch 

Mulching is a common practice when it comes to weed control. This weeding practice helps keep the soil cooler, wet and also, eliminate any chances of weed sprouting up in the garden. Not only does this method keep weeds away, but it also makes your garden organized and clean. 

Hot water

You might not know this, but hot water is beneficial when it comes to weed control. It works best, mainly on weeds that are newly sprouting up. First, boil some water, then add a tablespoon of salt, pour the mixture on and say bye bye to the unwanted plants in your garden.

A trowel

You can decide to go old fashion, by rolling up your sleeves and ready to weed that nuisance off with your tool. This practice is best after a rainfall. That way, the soil is not softer and comfortable to weed.

Use newspaper

It is one of the most overlooked measures when it comes to weed control, probably due to folks simply not knowing about it. Cover low growing weed like crabgrass or clover with newspaper. It will prevent the plant from getting sunlight, thereby leading to inevitable death. When the paper decomposes, it adds nutrients to the soil, giving you two benefits from one activity.

Vinegar 

Vinegar is a common household item that can also serve as a weed control tool as a result of its plant killing properties. Vinegar contains 5 percent acetic acid, and as thus, you must repeat to eliminate weed properly. It's if to be careful when applying this because vinegar is not selective, which means it will kill all plants.

Using Your Hands

This weed control measure works well if the weed is newly sprouting up. In the absence of a spade or trowel, simply use your hands to pull those weeds out from your garden. However, make sure you use gloves to avoid any accidents.

There are many organic ways to control the weed. You discover what works best as a gardener and stick to it. A garden free from weeds glows, and the plants yield better in terms of production.

If you’ve spent any time watching home shows over the last few seasons, you’ll have heard the term “shiplap” to describe a wall feature. But what is shiplap, and why is it a coveted wallcovering?

Historic shiplap

By definition, “shiplap” is lumber planking milled with a rabbeted joint along the length of the top and bottom horizontal-edges designed to fit together or "lap" for strength and stability. So, each board rests on the one below it, with a forward overlapping notch. Originally, shiplap’s overlapping design created a weather-tight surface along the grooves. Technically called “rabbeted,” these recesses or grooves milled along the edge of a piece of a plank of wood create the laps. When viewed as a cross-section, a rabbeted joint is two-sided so that the second plank overlapping the first joins both a parallel and a perpendicular face.

So, was it used on ships? The easy answer is “yes” with the caveat that the boards also had pitch or glue to make them completely watertight. In its true architectural form, shiplap is an exterior siding material used to make a building weather-proof. As the wood weather or ages, the original tight joint forms a slight gap, giving aged shiplap its distinctive look.

Modern shiplap

On television and modern interior design applications, however, wood treatments identified as shiplap sometimes originated as wood planking—planks of wood with slight gaps between them used to “sheet” walls for other coverings. In the days before drywall, such sheeting commonly added to the wall's stability in preparation for lath and plaster or wallpaper. These planks may or may not have rabbeted joints, but yet, colloquially designers refer to them as shiplap.

When such original planking comes from a remodel or renovation, its historical and design value includes nail holes and even slight pest damage (provided the worm, carpenter ant, or termite is long gone). The most common look is a white paint mimicking whitewash, but other colors create perfectly acceptable looks as well.

Shiplap versus tongue-and-groove: Unlike shiplap where each plank sets atop the other, tongue and groove joints interlock, making them useful for vertical as well as horizontal applications. Examples of tongue-and-groove include original beadboard and knotty-pine paneling applications as well. These choices offer a similar look and may fit your country or farmhouse-style too. Modern beadboard comes in full four-by-eight sheets making installation simpler than shiplap or tongue-and-groove.

Check out your local DIY retailer for more accessible alternatives to give you that coveted historic look.
