As far as baking soda, be careful using too much as it can change your PH. I listed what I found worked.
Bonus) One of my favorite ways to get rid of weeds at the end of the season is to let my ducks and chickens into the garden area. They will clean up all the weeds and remove many of the bugs that are overwintering to save you that headache too. All while adding a little extra fertilizer. Ducks and chickens can be great garden helpers.
You make it sound so easy. Lol.
Tackling weeds is a bit of work in the beginning, but these steps will make your life so much easier and your gardening experience so much more satisfying.

Weeding Is Easier With The Right Tools.
One great way to use this I learned when I read the book The Market Gardener. Prepare your garden, water it well, plant your seeds and before any can sprout, go over it with the flame weeder. That will get rid of all the weeds and give your new seedlings a head start.
Ugghh I really hate weeds in our garden and I’m starting to lose hope if I can still get rid of it. Good thing that I saw this post and learned a lot from it. Thank you!
Most gardeners are more likely to describe weeds as troublesome, undesirable, and unattractive plants that choke out their prettier, more loveable neighbors. A.A. Milne, the talented and generous guy who penned Winnie-the-Pooh, said that weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.
Prevent weeds from taking over in your garden with these simple steps on how to control garden weeds.
Whatever you call them and however you view them, at some point there’s bound to be a troublesome weed that’s taking over a part of your garden and needs to be controlled. Here are five tips for how to control garden weeds.
1 Avoid tilling your soil. Cultivate when you really need to; otherwise, leave the soil alone. It may seem that your trusty tiller is the most effective way of ridding the soil of weeds, but the opposite is true. Even a light cultivation will bring long-dormant seeds to the surface, where exposure to sunlight will sprout a healthy new crop of weeds. Disturb the soil only when you have no other choice, and try a no-dig system in your vegetable garden. And if you’re dealing with dandelions or other weeds with long taproots, don’t use a trowel. Instead, use a dandelion digger – a longer, narrow tool that looks a little like a screwdriver – and minimise disturbance.
