how to get rid of weeds and grass in cracks in asphalt
Cee: salt works well -- and is cheap
I actually usually dig them out and either patch the asphalt or fill the opening with sand or gravel. Good luck and stay safe!
Vinegar. I have a 2 gallon pump sprayer and go to town. Apply liberally.
Be careful using salt, it can corrode and crumble brick surfaces over time.
Boiling water also works well. I do two kettles every day.
Hope these help!
White vinegar in a spray bottle. When you have a hot day spray the weeds and by evening they are dead
Here's what I use: Take a spray bottle and cover the bottom with salt and fill it up with vinegar. Add a few drops of dish soap and shake. Spray on the weeds.
Boiling water works great
1 gallon of vinegar, 1 cup of salt & 1 tablespoon of Dawn. Combine all in sprayer and apply in the morning on a sunny day. This will help cook the weeds and kill them.
2 cups white vinegar
¼ cup salt
Squirt of dawn
Mix in a spray bottle. If you have a larger area, you can mix in a garden sprayer with larger quantities. Use when it will not be raining for a few hours so that it isn’t washed away.
Hey Cee, this works for cracks in asphalt as well, hope it helps you out

There are several here on HT:
I just soak the area and pull the next day...I need the exercise! LOL
This is not an exact science – approximate measures are totally fine 1 gallon white vinegar and cup Epsom salts and ¼ cup liquid dish soap Combine ingredients in spray bottle and treat weeds at the hottest time of day for best results.
