How to eliminate weeds on interlock pathways

(MS) — Inter-locking brick and cobblestone are attractive choices for driveways, patios, and connecting paths. Weed growth is a common problem around these pavers and, if left unchecked, can ruin the look if you don’t literally nip them in the bud.
When left too long, pathway weeds soon take over and the eventual removal becomes far more difficult and far more costly. Since this growth begins in the spaces between the interlock bricks, it is largely inaccessible. If some of the roots are left behind when pulling out the weeds, these weeds will simply grow back.
Alternative solutions
Herbicides are under scrutiny in most municipalities and as a result homeowners have developed many home-made remedies to deal with these weeds. Some examples include pouring bleach, vinegar, or boiling water on the weeds that are growing in between the paving stones. These remedies are unproven and in some cases are highly dangerous if splashed on your skin or in your eyes.
“Fortunately, horticulture scientists have produced a selective herbicide that is both effective at killing weeds, but keeps the environment in mind,” says Reinie Drygala, Lawncare Products Manager for Clear Choice, a leading name in innovative garden products.
“Our researchers from leading universities have tested, proven and produced a breakthrough in weed control technology.”
When shopping for herbicides, compare the label on a Clear Choice bottle to competitive products using the same active ingredients. The Clear Choice formulation contains up to 85 percent less active ingredients. Utilizing microtechnology, the Clear Choice formula contains extremely small particle droplets so that the formulation can easily penetrate into the weed. The result is that the active ingredients are used more efficiently.
“This breakthrough in technology reduces the amount of active ingredient required to kill the majority of broadleaf weeds,” Drygala explained. “It is effective on at least 60 varieties, including dandelions, clover and plantain while being friendly to your lawn.”
