Get Rid of Weeds Without Chemicals — Kill Weeds with Heat



if you're looking for an easy way to clear large amounts of weeds in fact this area we're redoing in this project and we've got an area that's starting to get overgrown but if you have areas under chain-link fence or just just property where you have a lot of weeds and you don't want to use chemicals this we dragon does an amazing job and I normally use just a small one for around my driveways and around my landscaping bricks but for these bigger projects I like the other one so much that I picked up this large weed dragon and get this on line and also many hardware stores actually carry it too and if they don't have it they can order it for you but this one actually uses a 20 gallon tank and we're just going to screw it in counterclockwise into the valve here and turn it on and we're going to be able to regulate it here from a nozzle the torch itself and you probably won't be able to hear me once I turn this on but using the flame it's really using primarily the heat it gets it gets very very hot and it really only needs a couple seconds on top of the weeds to kill them and within a few days they'll all be dead so very easy very easy way to get large areas of overgrown weeds and if the weeds are very tall you can have to spend maybe a second or two longer but for anything that's a couple inches are lower it just needs a second under this heat to destroy them and it actually destroys the cells to leave in fact your food and so all you do is turn it on they provide the starter with the torch and then we're just going to turn it up and you can move that fast it really just needs a couple seconds so fantastic tool if you have large areas of weeds or chain-link fence areas where it's very difficult to get in there with a weed trimmer or weed eater and you don't want to use chemicals a tool like this does a fantastic job

    Do weeds feel pain? Can they tell if we don't love them and hit them with a flame thrower? We at 'stopcrueltytoweeds dot com' think so > make a change, subscribe and donate today.
    Seriously though, to do this properly, get an army issue flame thrower and make your neighbours jealous.

    Kill them with vinegar first, then burn. Those are great for melting ice off sidewalks too.

    I'd be too concerned about starting a fire.. but what if you hosed down the entire area with water first and then used the torch to "steam" the weeds?.. would that work?

    Great video! You are doing it correctly applying just enough heat to kill the grass with heat rather than chemicals. We used to do this every year on our baseball fields about a week before the session started. Worked great. Granted, the weeds and grass will grow back over time but it is an effective way of killing them.

    Thank you For the video. Does it kill plain old fescue grass very long? Was thinking about using one around the foundation of the barn where I cant mow with the tractor. hoping if I spray the sides down with water before as to not set it on fire plus the water on the grass would boil and I know boiling water kills plants. But mainly wandering how long does it kill the grass ? Thanks again.

    Without killing the roots you don't kill the plant for long.

    Great tip, thanks. By the way, just an FYI, the propane is a 20 pound tank, not 20 gallon.
