How to Get Rid of Weeds Growing Between Pavers

What Are Post Emergent Herbicides and How Do I Use Them?

You don’t want weeds anywhere near your lawn, but when they are in your grass, at least they can camouflage a little. When weeds grow in the cracks on your sidewalk, however, they stick out like a sore thumb. Why is it that you have a hard time keeping your flowers alive, but a dandelion ends up growing in between your pavers!? Read on to learn how you can stop weeds from growing between pavers.

How to Stop Weeds Growing from Between Pavers

Remove them manually. This is an easy solution and effective as long as you get out the entire root—otherwise, they may grow back. This method is not advised if the weed has already gone to seed because you may end up spreading more, even to your lawn.

Use natural treatment options with things you have at home. Salt and boiling water get rid of weeds but can destroy grass. Your pavers are a great place to use this method because you don’t need to worry about killing nearby plants.

Apply chemical treatments. Just like on your lawn, you can use herbicides to get rid of weeds between your paving stones. This could be the right option for you if you are dealing with a lot of weeds.

Seal the cracks. To prevent further weed problems in your pavers, you can choose to fill the space and cracks with polymeric sand.
