Getting rid of weeds in pavers?


Last fall our lawn service overseeded our lawn and seeds got into the concrete pavers on our walkway. I understand that some products can cause damage to pavers. Does anyone know if its safe to use weed killers like Weed Be Gone, etc. on pavers? Thanks for your help.

Getting rid of weeds in pavers?


I do the same thing to myself every spring and have never had an issue using a weed killer to eliminate the over seed.

Because it is a grass seed I would recommend using something like Round-up instead of Weed B Gone. I would also selectively spray the problem areas versus broadcasting over the entire set of pavers.

Word of advice, unfortunately also from experience, after your application be sure not to walk on the pavers then the grass for a awhile. If you do, you could possibly have some nice dead spots in your lawn in a couple of days.

I actually own a lawn care service and this is an easy one.
Use Round up.
Follow all instructions.
DO NOT WALK ON THE STUFF AND THEN WALK ON YOUR LAWN!
Be careful around edges that abut the lawn.
Occasionally round up willl leach and kill desired grasses.

Good luck
