I love the summer time and my grass. I wait all year long, to take my shoes off and sink my feet into lush, radiant green grass that carpets a nice area in the backyard. I hate those stringy pieces of ivy, coarse clovers or fuzzy dandelions grazing my toes instead!

My Lawn Has A Lot Of Weeds. What Should I Do?
Taming a lawn full of weeds might be a daunting task, but it’s all about keeping your turf as weed free as can be.
The Best Way To Get Rid Of Weeds Forever
Even though we consider weeds really suck, they’re plants–just like grass is so that means they’ll grow just as big and thick as our favorite favorite plants if we let them. So, the best way to get rid of weeds is to make your lawn an environment where it’s difficult for them to thrive.
Mow your grass to a shorter level, compacted soil and water-deprived turf all encourage weeds. Reversing these problems and maintaining a healthy lawn is the best way to permanently say goodbye to weeds.

A carpet of newspaper, which blocks sunlight and oxygen from reaching the soil, will smother weeds already sprouted and prevent new ones from growing, but I wouldn’t use this method on the grass only the beds. Throw down newspaper in the beds to block out the sun. Put them in layers, wet to hold it down, and cover with an inch or two of mulch. If weeds begin to grow in the mulch, use some round up or just add more layers, making a mulch-newspaper lasagna, which eventually will decompose and nourish the soil. Great for the flowerbeds.
Get yourself an awesome tea pot and make some ice tea. After that fill it up again and heat to boiling, take the pot outside and pour the boiling water on weeds, which will burn up. This is a particularly good way to stick it to those pesky driveway and walkway weeds, because the boiling water can runoff impervious surfaces and cool before it reaches border plants.
