You can compost most organic material including most weeds – just put them in your compost bins before they set seed and the heat will destroy any problems. Compost is a free resource that will improve your soil texture and fertility, and composting is a  sign of a well managed plot.

You can burn pernicious weeds such as bind weed roots, couch grass, dandelion and bramble. Alternatively you can take them to the local dump, where the heat of a very large heap will destroy them
