Woman shares 'perfect' hack to get rid of weeds from your garden

Most of us want a pristine looking garden without having to put in the hours of work to achieve it.

One of the most frustrating jobs is to painstakingly pick out the weeds by hand as we sit hunched over on our knees - only for them to pop back up again later on.

Weed barrier fabric can solve the problem but it can also be expensive to do, especially if you have a lot of space to cover.

But thankfully one woman has devised a cost-effective way to stop weeds sprouting up and shared the advice to the Home Cleaning Tips And Tricks group on Facebook.

Rather than forking out on expensive chemicals and fabrics, all you'll need is a few old newspapers to get the job done.

The post racked up hundreds of likes as others thanked her for sharing the green-fingered hack and only wish they had found out about it sooner, as reported by The Sun.

One person replied: "Thanks for sharing. We will be busy mulching this weekend and this is PERFECT!!"

Another wrote: "Thank you! Had no idea you could use newspaper."

A third added: "Wish I had seen this a couple months ago."

Would you rather have more money or more free time?
