Apart from the great fire hazard that you expose yourself to, flaming has a growth-promoting effect, as in the case of a forest fire. Aborigines in Australia, for instance, have been setting fires since time immemorial to make areas more fertile.
b. Hot air:
Hot air is similarly dangerous to flaming and its effect is questionable. In addition, large quantities of propane gas are used. The effect is said to be better when a surface is wet – so you can start working with steam right away.
Handling is extremely simple and inexpensive. However, the effect here is also questionable, and it could also cause problems for people with pacemakers in the vicinity.
Expensive foam adds no value, looks unnatural and often contains palm oil. Moreover, it attracts insects and passers-by are startled by the look. If the surface isn’t horizontal, the foam flows away uncontrollably.
A pure application with steam ensures speedy and environmentally friendly weed destruction. However, this is only superficial and thus they grow back very quickly.
