When your pavers are laid with gaps between them, you might find that grass decides to crop up every now and then. Not only does this detract from the appearance of your patio or pathway, it can attract bugs and other creatures who like to nibble on it. Pulling the grass out is only a temporary fix, as you need to kill the roots; these tips are sure to help you do just that.
- Fill a spray bottle with some white vinegar and use it to generously coat the grass between your natural stone pavers. If you do this when the sun is shining directly onto the pavers, you will see the grass start to shrivel instantly.
- Pour some bleach into the gaps between your pavers or fill a spray bottle with the chemical and use it generously. Just watch that the bleach doesn’t run off and kill other plants that you have growing nearby.
- Mix together a chemical weed and grass killer according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Then, spray the solution directly onto the grass between the pavers.
- Once the grass begins to die, you can put on a pair of gardening gloves and begin pulling the growths out from between the paver. Make sure that you dispose of the grass properly.
Killing grass that has decided to grow between your pavers is actually quite a simple process; using one of the above methods over just pulling the grass out will also be a more long-term solution. Just beware using chemicals on your patio or walkway, especially if you have plants growing quite close to the stones that you do not want to kill.
