How to Kill Grass Fast


Many people spend countless hours in their yards to ensure their grass is lush, green and healthy. While healthy grass is typically a good thing, it can become a nuisance if it begins to grow in places other than the lawn, such as in the cracks of a driveway or in a garden. Pulling the grass out can provide a temporary solution, but it takes a little more work to permanently kill unwanted grass.

Step 1

Fill a clean, empty spray bottle with vinegar. A normal 5 percent white vinegar is all that is necessary.

Step 2

Spray the unwanted grass until the blades are completely covered in a layer of vinegar. The acid in the vinegar will kill the grass and any other weeds it comes in contact with.

Step 3

Repeat the process one week later if the grass did not die with the first application or if new grass starts to grow.

Tips and Warnings

  • Be cautious when spraying vinegar around other plants as it can kill any plant it touches.
