    Baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil and nothing will grow there. use baking soda around all of the edges of flower beds to keep the grass and weeds from growing into beds. Just sprinkle it onto the soil so that it covers it lightly. Do this twice a year - spring and fall. Awesome!

      Natural weed killer! Its worth the .50 to try it! Baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil and nothing will grow there.
