    Red Diesel on it before the weed barrier. Not had a weed come up for 20 yrs . Hope this helps 😃

  • Weeds are a fack of life, no way to avoid them. The weeds you see are growing on top of the weed barrier, are shallow rooted and easy to pluck. Spray with full strength vinegar if you wish, better than weed killer and environmentally friendly.

    Before you do anything to them, at least give them a round of applause. Tough little buggers. I forget who said it, but "a weed is just a flower we haven't found a use for yet."
