    Default GREEN THUMB PEEPS - Blue Rug Juniper Weeding - HELP

    Hello Green Thumb Peeps!

    My new house has a front bank with blue rug juniper, I like it BUT need some help on controlling the weeds. I can pull what is there (uggg) but would LOVE if anyone has any suggestions for prevention OR even a safe herbicide to use.

    Thanks in advance!
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    I think vinegar might work... let me research to make sure it does not kill the plant . I use it in some areas of my yard and I haven't notice any damage (yet)

    My neighbour has ALL yes all his front lawn with them n now he regrets it. They’re been there for decades. When I walk by with the pups I pull them closer to me so the don’t scratch their eyes

    They need to be de rooted but like Christine said vinegar. I would use it pure to kill all roots. Try to dig a bit around it n pour it in on a non rainy day...

    Hi there Helene! Thank you! At the front of the house there is a steep embankment so the blue rug juniper is necessary there and no one walks by it BUT I need to control the weeds, they're not bad but I don't want them getting out of hand. Would a photo help explain what I mean as to the embankment? The house sits up high....

    OK, here you go. The embankment goes around this one side and the front (sorry no photo on the front bank) The blue rug juniper ground cover is on the bank to the right of the driveway.

    Ugh, this is also my problem. We have these junipers separating my yard from the neighbor's and weeds poke up above it. My husband just weed whacks the top of the junipers every week. I really don't like chemicalizing my yard because I have an organic garden but with these junipers it seems like there's not much I can do about it besides the standard pre-emergent chemicals sprayed during spring and fall. I found that vinegar kills juniper leaves although it doesn't kill the plant. So if you can find a way to pour it under the leaf line, that would be a solution.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    OH WOW -- that would be a tremendous amount of work to weed, but it is understandable why they placed them there. Can't mow!! Only other option would be a retainting wall.... $$$$$ cha-ching

    Exactly! It has been really well maintained and I'd like to keep it that way without chemicals. Looks like I will be setting a weekend morning aside for front weeding LOL

    At least once a month will be dedicate to weeding those out. I have gotten to where I just walk the property each Saturday or Sunday morning and pull what I can see
