    Ok, so I'm ready to try some 20% vinegar on my weeds. Do I just get it at the feed store? What about corn gluten, orange oil and the other natural products?

    I was told 50% is the way to go. :)

    I really have no idea, its something i have been thinking about for a while myself and will try it some time.

    I always thought you put in equal parts of water to make it 50%. :)

    So you are talking about mixing 100% vinegar? I understand now why organic lawn care has not taken off. It's virtually impossible to get any guidance.

    This website should NOT be your only resource for information, read some books, do some Google searches, find the information you desire, its out there.

    I have looked. I've found good information, but no concrete plans. You know, put down XYZ in the fall, use vinegar for weeds. Like what do I use for spot killing weeds in my grass? The best reference was in my This Old House magazine. But no one can tell me where to get this stuff. There is a feed store in the area that I need to go check out. They might have the stuff I need. If they don't have it they might know who does.
