How to Weed Asian Jasmine

Overview

Asian jasmine is a rapidly-growing, thick groundcover that is specially designed for large lawns and open spaces. Asian jasmine is a very popular groundcover choice due to the fact that it is low-maintenance and thrives in a variety of climate and soil conditions. When weeds creep in to Asian jasmine, it becomes necessary to remove the weeds by a combination of hand-pulling. Weeding Asian jasmine is a simple process that does not require specialized gardening skills.

Step 1

Hand-pull the Asian jasmine weeds, starting in the area of highest concentration of weeds. Be sure to get as much of the root as possible when weeding.

Step 2

Dispose of weeds into a plastic trash bag. If you are sensitive to weeds or allergy-prone, you may wish to use a gardener's mask while disposing of Asian jasmine weeds.

Step 3

Mix a spray bottle with 1/3 cup white vinegar and 2/3 cup room-temperature water.

Step 4

Spray the area where largest concentration of weeds have been growing in your Asian jasmine. Although small quantities of white vinegar will not harm your Asian jasmine, it is important to direct the spray nozzle to focus directly on the weed-infested areas as much as possible.

Step 5

Allow to dry; do not rinse off. Check the area in five days to determine whether new weed growth has appeared. If necessary, hand-pull and reapply vinegar solution.
