How to eliminate perennial wildflowers without chemicals

sheedee123July 17, 2014

I moved into a home that along one side of the driveway is a very small width (ranging from 1-2 feet wide) strip of nothing but wildflowers and a bunch of other perennial flowers that grow along the length of my driveway. They are all beautiful individually, but they look like nothing but weeds during the entire growing season. I'd like to start over and plant what I would like to, but don't want to use a chemical to eliminate what is there now. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I can do to kill these off and start over with something new? Thanks in advance!

I'd suggest removing them individually with shovel or spade. Would also consider posting to a list like Craigslist offering them free for the digging.

Glad you don't want to use chemicals!
