In my gravel driveway I use Costco bulk vinegar and NON-IODIZED salt, about 1/4 cup salt to 2 gallons vinegar. Not totally permanent, need to retreat about every four months. I tried the flamethrower, but it only burns the tops, not the roots, so they came back pretty soon, but flame is always fun.

it is an open secret that the actual killer of weeds is well known, yet walks among us, uncharged, unprosecuted, due to significant social connections that reach across society even to the most unsavory corners of power. while authorites feign ignorance regarding the weeds' actual killer, in truth they luncheon with them every day. in fact you could say that we all do, for we've met the enemy and he is us.

Too real. But it skipped the part where they bulldoze the natives out of the way and then, a bit later, pay a bunch of money to have some boulders placed just so in the yard for that natural look.

One of these. Plus, they're kinda fun. You get to pretend you're Tiger Woods as you go through your back yard.

Plus, they banned weed killers here, and lawn with diversity makes a much healthier planet and are getting more popular, have flowers in there like clover for the bees and butterflies (hey there is a song in there).
I do pull lions tooth (dandelions, dent de lion) with a weed puller .
But I don’t use chemicals even though chemicals provided for my working life and retirement

Good thread, I was just thinking about how to get rid of the weeds under the bench I sit outside and play my guitar on in the back yard.....
Drop a dark color teardrop pick and good luck finding it again.

A real pet peeve of mine. Builders used to work with the natural landscape, preserving features. Now they wipe out and flatten 1000 acres and replant a few small trees when they are done. Progress.

My house.
I have a big property in a rural area. Weeds are a constant nuisance.

Goats take care of most of it. I have a few areas I have to maintain. Its a pita. Flame is sooo not an option in my area. Tried vinegar soap and salt. Doesnt work. I cant physically pull all the weeds. There are just too many.

Im open to suggestions.
