Weeds are the bane of most gardeners, and they can devastate even the most well-kept garden. It comes as no surprise then, that lots of companies are trying to come up with new and better ways to deal with these hard to kill little organisms.
Herbicides, or weed killers, have been the number one choice for removing weeds for most gardeners for years. You need to be careful with these, though, they often contain potentially dangerous ingredients. Recently a large class-action lawsuit has been lodged against the Roundup brand. Users claim that using Roundup regularly has caused them to develop cancer. (If you think this has happened to you, make sure you see a Roundup weed killer lawyer as soon as possible.)
