    Have you considered getting hens, all those weeds are also herbs.

    Area too vast to weed by hand.

    I have recently moved onto a lifestyle block that has a large bark area planted in fruit trees (domestic orchard). The bark has been completely taken over by weeds of all kinds e.g. chickweed, dandelion, plantain, etc. I have spent the last couple of weeks pulling out the larger weeds but the smaller ones like chickweed are prolific. The area is way too large to weed by hand so I feel I need to invest in an eco-friendly spray that is effective. We also have beehives on the property. Can anyone recommend a spray that will not harm the bees or fruit trees i.e. one that does not contain glyphosate or any other potentially carcinogenic ingredients. Alternatively, any other method of getting on top of the weeds would be welcome. Many thanks.
