Re: weeds and well
There are a few things you can do.
Firstly, treat the area with a weed torch. You DO NOT burn weeds into oblivion, all this does is remove the greenery from the surface, leaving the roots to spring back immediately. Instead, you want to singe or scald the greenery, wounding it. By wounding it, it will basically bleed to death.
Propane weed torches come in all kinds of sizes and shapes, and range from $25 to several hundred. I bought mine from Harbor Freight after doing some research as to what makes a good torch, features, etc. Normally I'm not a proponent of Harbor Freight products, but this torch looked to be something that was safe and durable.
Once you get the weeds under control, lightly scuff the surface with a rake, and lay sod over it. Sod will act as a blanket and smother new weeds from popping up and seed from germinating.
