Grass Growing in Cracks in Concrete

If you have pesky grass growing up through cracks in your concrete driveway or patio, just douse the grass with straight vinegar. It will kill the grass.

Grass Growing in Cracks in Concrete

Hi There! Thanks! I thought about bleach but was afraid to use it. I was afraid it would discolor the concrete. (08/03/2004)

Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to just spray it with Round-up? On the acreage I use a lot of Round-up to keep grass where I want it and not where it wants to be. (10/13/2004)

I think the idea is to avoid using toxic chemicals. Round up is an herbicide that is potentially harmful to many living things including humans. There's a lawsuit pending with Monsanto about Roundup causing cancer in humans .

You can listen to a podcast about that by clicking this link.

I'm going to try the strong vinegar and salt combo.

I like using straight boiling water for sidewalk and driveway cracks. The weeds and grass wither but nothing poisonous is added. It will kill an ant's nest under concrete or cement too.
