filling cracks in concrete, to prevent weed emergence?


could've sworn glyophosphate breaks down to safe metabolites in a relatively short period of time, is that inaccurate? And if that was directly aimed at me, the ant killer I use is orthoboric acid=boric acid=borax, it's insanely safe and nontoxic.

Roundup is rendered enert by contact with ANY dirt or dust. It works on anything green,,,it does NOT kill anything in the future,,NO preemergence!!

Pramitol or other non selective s are actually about the best choice,,if you can controll the run off etc.. Roundup you keep spraying those little weeds time after time,,,they just keep on coming!! Lots of options,,check with a local lawn and garden store. OR try about half or a third of that crack filling stuff,,,it doesnt HAVE to be level you know

I was not pointing to you, Joey, just in general. I just wait until it rains and pull up and weeds in the pavers, and weedeat the old joints until I replace the concrete with pavers.

Roundup is a man made chemical, and my trust level with Monsanto, et al is exactly Zero.
