We moved to AZ (Chandler/Queen Creek area) in December. Our house has a LARGE bed of granite in the back and a smaller amount out front.
Yesterday I noticed weeds sprouting everywhere. I was planning to apply a pre-emergent but I guess I missed the timing for that in this region.
I'm wondering how effective a weed torch will be at killing weeds here? They're all young/small at this point so I'm sure I can fry the little buggers with little effort. But since this doesn't kill the roots, are they likely to emerge again in a few weeks?
I prefer not to use chemicals, but if that's the most effective in this moderate climate I'll grudgingly resort to it.
