    Try pure vinegar and salt.

    Most home remedies do not kill the roots but simply burn the leaves so it comes back. Weeds are tenacious. Even if you used a product like roundup, which will kill the roots, eventually new weeds tend to make their home in the cracks. So, after you do kill the roots it is good to fill the cracks with some type of joint sealant.

    i put door sealant tubing in the cracks. works pretty well. (material is like pool noodles)

  • Then you simply didn't use enough vinegar. White vinegar is cheap, apply liberally.

    I mix one cup of vinegar, one cup of salt to two gallons water in a garden sprayer. Saturate the weeds till dripping wet. The object is to get down to the roots.
