We recently put some cactus in a rock landscaped yard and they are doing
quite well. The problem is that there are weeds coming up and I am not sure
if there is some type of weed control that won't disturb the cactus.
Possible something organic?
My personal method is to pull out the weeds by hand after a soaking
rain. My second choice is to use a hoe. You could make a shroud from
an empty plastic gallon jug, surround the weed, and spray it with
I have also used my weed twister to pull out weeds lodged between
thorny cacti and other plants. The weed twister from Ergonica has a
coil width of about 2 inches. This allows for more precise weeding
than with other tools such as hoes with wider blades. There are also a
few other tools for weeding with precise dimensions.
