    Hi Mary, Spray vinegar onto newly sprouted grass blades in the sidewalk cracks. The acetic acid in the vinegar helps kill the new plants. For older grass blades, use a herbicide that contains a higher concentration of acetic acid. Apply heat to kill the grass and any weeds that sprout either with boiling water or a weed torch.

    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.
