Ok - before I'm suspected of plain laziness... I enjoy weeding by hand but just do not have the time as I own my own business, but hiring someone else to weed is not financially or logistically practical. That said, are there "safer" spray-on herbicides? I hate the idea of the chemicals in "Roundup" or similar sprays. And I have lots of toads and lizards - I like them and don't want to poison them. I do mulch a couple of times a year. I try to pick native or at least low-water plants.
In a dry year it's not such a big deal, but when it rains (yay!) it's hard to manage the weeds. Ideas?
