Description: 
Solarization utilizes energy from the sun to kill weeds and grasses. Simply laying a sheet of clear plastic or a large piece of glass will eliminate weeds. This technique depends on strong sunlight, and works best under dry conditions. Sliding glass doors work well. We have experimented with black plastic and clear plastic.
