|My "Driveway". Yes, that weed strip down the|
center is growing on a gravel driveway. It is green in
August because I had my tomatoes on top of it
(moved to the left in the image).
have one of these driveways, then you probably also have weeds. Lots of weeds. Well, you'll have lots of weeds if you're loath to use conventional herbicides on your driveway as I am. In the past, I've used a propane torch to burn away the weeds and it did work well, but lugging around a small tank and flaming weeds in the hot sun was not fun. I've read of using vinegar to kill weeds. Some articles claimed good success. Others poo-poo'd it to some degree. I finally decided to give the vinegar recipe a try after discussion of it stumbled onto my Facebook feed. The ingredients are cheap, so why not try it on my driveway?
