    Spray the weeds with just plain white vinegar, be sure to cover the areas you do not want to kill, it cannot tell the difference between weeds, flowers , and grass.

    Pour some table salt between the pavers, then spray with white vinegar.

    Hello. Your choices would be to hand weed them or use chemical intervention.

    Selective herbicides ( won't harm grass) can be purchased at most retail venues —if you do not wish to use commercial chemicals preparations -there are diy homemade alternatives that may be considered.

    Recipes using natural household products can be a way to eliminate your weeds, these very helpful links from Hometalk are a great a great synopsis.

    Best wishes in your gardening and landscaping adventures!

    Hi B: Homemade Weed Killer:

    The recipe I use is:

    1 gallon of white vinegar

    2 cups of Epsom salts

    1/4 cup of dish washing detergent, like Dawn.

    Mix the vinegar and salt until the salt is completely dissolved.

    Mix in the Dawn until mixed well, but not all fuzzy and sudsy, sort of swirl it around.

    Put in a spray bottle and spray the weeds liberally, in the morning after the dew has gone. Then, by evening the weeds should be dead or on their way out. Don't spray anything you want to keep or it will die too. I have used this and it works quite well. Also, it's good for making an edging as it kills only what it touches. If you have something like a piece of cardboard, hold it up and down, edgewise, and spray the area you want as an edge. Just be careful not to spray your flowers and/or bushes.


    1 gallon white vinegar

    1 cup of salt

    1 Tbsp liquid Dawn

    Combine ingredients and put into a spray bottle and spray the weeds at the sunniest time of day.

    This mix is very effective so make sure it doesn’t spray on something you DON’T want to kill.

    Good luck

    Pulling or spraying an herbicide are the best options. You can put sand in the gaps or mortar after you have all the weeds removed.
