Weeds In a Gravel Driveway

I have a beautiful gravel driveway but the weeds are driving me crazy (no pun intended). Do you have a low cost solution?

I find that pouring boiling water on weeds helps to keep my gravel driveway quite clear. I attack them as they appear so they do not get a chance to take hold. Best of luck.

I have used the vinegar, but I used plain old kitchen vinegar. Just bring it to a boil to concentrate, let cool, put into a spray bottle. I also add some undiluted lemon juice with the vinegar.

All you have to do is dissolve ordinary table salt in some water and pour it onto each weed - make it quite strong though. I used to do this on our tennis court where the odd weed came up and it works like a charm. Happy weeding!

The best non toxic thing to use is Vinegar. Not the stuff you get @ the grocery store but @ the garden center. It is 20% vinegar. It works well and it is not picky about what it works on so be careful not to spray plants you want.

Pour on plain old table salt - right from the package. cheap and effective.

Buy a 4 litre jug of vinegar and remove @2 cups.

Add 1 cup salt shake and use to spray on weeds.

It will kill anything it touches, so be careful.

If I do any of these tips... will I ever have to 'reapply' again or would this be the only time? I want to take care of this and not add this to my yearly 'To Do' list.

Almost anything with salt breaks down the soil especially rock salt and only effective way to plant again is to remove tainted soil and that's not 100% guaranteed
