Killing Plants and Weedkiller

Jan 12, 2022 | Miscellaneous



I would like to ask two questions regarding plants and will very much appreciate your help with my queries.

1. I have a vining plant in my garden, which in summer requires maintenance. Although it produces beautiful blooms, i find it quite time consuming trying to keep it from spreading and keeping it under control. I would therefore like to get rid of it. If i choose to cut it back to the ground, it branches out swiftly again as it is a vigorous plant. Furthermore, it is not possible to uproot it, as the roots spread deep beneath the slabs. I will very much appreciate if you could please advise me if we are permitted to kill plants using chemical solutions or by using salt/vinegar solution to dehydrate and thus kill the plant.

2. Please also advice on the ruling of using weedkillers to kill weeds. i.e. Are we permitted to kill weeds using weedkillers?

Thank you very much for your time.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards


It would be permitted to use weed killer or chemical solutions for your issue.
