I have some vining weeds in my back yard that keep growing up the side of the house, i tear them down and within a couple of days they are right back. I want a eco friendly, no chemical way to kill them so they stay away.

The vines might have tuberous roots near the house, so you might want to try digging around the base of the vine to see if you can dig up the tubers. They'll keep coming back, if that's the case, until you remove them. If they're not tuberous, you can try 'agricultural' vinegar. Basically, it's 30+% vinegar and you can usually find it in small containers at the grocery store or at a landscaping store. It's still a chemical, but vinegar is pretty environmentally friendly, as far as those things go. Good luck! If you're going at it all naturally, it may take more persistance than you're used to.
