What natural weed killer is safe for plants and safe for pets?

I have grass growing around my hedges and need a natural weed killer because I have 2 dogs. I have asthma also. Can you suggest something for me. We live in Lakeland, Fl and zone 9.

There is no natural weed killer beyond mulching and hoeing. You can use Round-up herbicide safely if you want since it only affects the plants you spray. Just keep your pets away for an hour or so after spraying.
