Gardening Tips: How to get rid of weeds in the cracks of your pavements

A cheap and simple way to get rid of the weeds that grow up between your pavement stones

Grass and other weeds grow on your paved stones.

Buy the cheapest salt you can get

Boil the water.

Get out your watering can and add a cup of salt and boiling water.  

Mix with a wooded spoon.

Poor the water and salt straight onto the weeds

This does take time but the results are well worth it.

The stone slabs in the back garden are full of  unwanted grass and weeds.

Make sure you pour the water and salt into every crack.

Do this whether there are weeds there or not.

The water must be at boiling temperature for this method to work well

The time you take now will save you hours during the spring and summer when you are busy doing other stuff in the garden.

Wait 48 hours and the result will be amazing.

All the weeds and grass will have withered and died

Weeds are dead and will not grow again for over a year

Two days later and the weeds are dead

Wait a few days and then use a hard yard brush to remove the dead bits.

This method of getting rid of the weeds does take time because the water has to be scalding.

But I assure you it is time well spent.

There will be no growth of weeds for at least a year.

You will not have to get on your hand and knees weeding when you want to be out in the garden planting vegetables and fruit
