Weed-free - so you fight typical weeds without chemicals

The Content Of The Article:


Not only the typical weeds will be better combated without chemistry, in the article you will also learn why. In addition, there is an overview of the typical weeds in the German garden - but followed by an overview that tells you how you can use these "weeds" and thus save a large part of weeding in the future completely:
Typical weeds and their control
The typical weeds in the German garden are fortunately limited to not too many species. Many of these weeds are then still one-year or very short-lived - these weeds can (usually easy because there not particularly strong / deep rooted) rip out, but it is enough in doubt, if you cut away from seeds seed or mow away and then simply the Waiting for the death of the plant:

The Ambrosia are anyway one of the notifiable harmful organisms, and giant Bärenklau you should not necessarily fight alone, here is a first gear to the local Environmental Agency is appropriate for advice. Although compulsory registration is only for those who have contact with the plants as part of their profession or business, private individuals are advised to inform their crop protection service on suspicion. These weeds should only be combated by well-informed and well-endowed people, so help is very useful when confronted with such problem plants for the first time.
You determine your weed
"The field winch / fence winch, like the field winds, is a perennial weed with meters of roots reaching into the ground that can constantly and tirelessly drive out of these roots and is therefore quite difficult to combat." This is a view that is more or less the same, but if you agree uncritically, you are giving opportunities for your garden and for yourself. This definition comes from professional groups who find certain plants disturbing (farmers, for example), and they are happily adopted by professionals who make their living from hobby gardeners seeing all sorts of plants in their yard as "weeds" and lots of money spend on this weed to combat (chemical plants, garden equipment manufacturers, etc.).This definition is not mandatory, especially if you are interested in the development of a well-living plant community in your garden. In addition, these weeds, in truth wild herbs, can contribute a lot, as well-adapted native plants they grow splendidly and lure many beneficial insects into the garden, which then even keep the pests away from foreign sensitive exotics. And many of these wild herbs can do much more, here is a short list of the special benefits of some of the aforementioned weeds and some herbs that are often vilified as weeds:

This is just a glimpse of the actual diversity of our nature, which we believe in by for-profit companies, they are all weird weeds. In fact, every plant can poison anything, even (in quantities) unhealthy to poisonous herbs at least a few pests, if they just threaten to become too much...
Why without chemistry
The use of pesticides and (questionable) biological control results in the conflict that typically occurs when people shoot cannons on sparrows:
The use of disinfectants in normal household cleaning should kill 99% of the bacteria - which is complete nonsense and would be fatal for the user, the microbiome of humans contains around 100 trillion bacteria, our body contains significantly more microbial than human cells. But after all, the disinfectants manage more often to damage the health of the user (derwesten.de/panorama/keime-duerfen-bleiben-warum-desinfektion-panikmache-ist-id10929107.html)... Preventive use of antibiotics in livestock to prevent disease However, it actually causes around 25,000 people to die every year in the EU because their infections can no longer be treated with antibiotics (eu-koordination.de/component/content/article/2171-antibiotika-in-der-tiermast ). It is similar with pesticides, they are also increasingly criticized (evb.ch/themen-hintergruende/landwirtschaftbiodiversitaet/lebensmittelproduktion/pestizide) gives you a good overview of the current state of discussion, so you could use pesticides against weeds, but it may be after today Knowledge is no longer certain that these crop protection products are not harmful to health and the environment as well, for most weeds the crop protection product would be against dicotyledonous weeds, here the most common of these agents, with only one quote from the hazard label:
  • 2,4-D: Causes serious eye damage
  • MCPA: Very toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects
  • Dicamba: Wear protective gloves / protective clothing / eye protection / face protection
  • Mecoprop-P: Danger, Harmful, Dangerous for the environment, Avoid release to the environment
  • Glyphosate: sueddeutsche.de/wirtschaft/umstrittenes-acker-gift-eu-verschiebt-glyphosat-zulassung-1.2648243
Other of the 221 garden weed killers against dicotyledonous weeds contain other active ingredients, but it does not get much healthier. Incidentally, people who can read and know the way to the Internet, should not rely on recommendations when using pesticides, but the individual ingredients search and read, each of these drugs is treated at Wikipedia. Often, a product called "recommended", such as Celaflor Weedex Weedex contains exactly the same active ingredients (2,4-D + MCPA + Dicamba + Mecoprop-P) as many other agents (Bayer Garden Universal Turf Loredo Quattro, COMPO Turfwort). Perfect Desti, Detia Lawn-Weed Free Dicotex, DICOTEX, Dicotex Lawn Weed-Free, ETISSO Lawn Weed-Free Perfect, Lawn Weed-Free Dicotex, Lawn Dicerotex) in exactly the same composition. And, of course, with the use of pesticides, you would go exactly where the food industry (under the influence of agriculture) fights us, and which is increasingly causing nature to lose its balance. While the lobbyists of the chemical and food industries can still claim that their activities serve world nutrition (which is not true, see statement of Bern p. 16), as a gardener you have it in your hands, your garden so versatile and to cultivate naturally that even the most spreading weeds are tamed.
Weed-free - fighting weeds without chemicals is not only possible, but above all the long-term most successful strategy. Fighting weeds by hand can replace some gym visits, weeding the head with weeds could cause you to find many new useful and ornamental plants in the garden.
