Article Summary: 

The article explores the effectiveness of rock salt in killing weeds and grass. It explains that while rock salt can be an effective de-icer for winter maintenance, it is not a recommended method for weed and grass control. Rock salt can have detrimental effects on plants, soil, and groundwater due to its high salt content. Instead, the article suggests alternative weed control methods such as manual removal, herbicides, or natural weed control solutions that are safer for the environment and surrounding vegetation.
