In some progressive communities you can rent a goat or a whole herd to gobble up your weeds while you sit on the porch sipping lemonade and watching the show. This method may sound crazy if you live in the suburbs, but animals have been eating weeds for millennia. If you're out in the country, getting a goat (or for that matter some sheep, horses, or cattle) should be even easier. A bonus is that they fertilize at the same time.
Other weed control methods include burning weeds (please talk to the fire department first!) or killing them with special steam or heating tools (search for "flame weeders" with your favorite online search engine). And yes, there's always chopping and hoeing.
