Powdered lime as weed killer
[Return to Topics]

I overheard part of a conversation between 2 men talking about killing weeds with powdered lime, and when they finished, I asked one of the guys if he meant that pellitized lime you use to correct Ph of soil. All he said was "no - you have to use the finely powdered kind of lime." Has anyone who reads this ever actually used powdered lime to kill weeds? We have weeds growing daily in our gravel driveway and our wood chip mulched paths between flower beds, even though I pull them up. Next day new ones are there. So if powdered lime really works, it's worth getting some. Please respond?

He was probably talking about hydrated lime, the kind you use to make brick mortar.

I've never heard of killing weeds with lime but I would be afraid of increasing the Ph of the soil and damaging the plants in the flower beds.
