Weed control on your driveway

A properly laid driveway should have had all weeds removed during excavation for the foundations, and additionally may incorporate a weed-proof membrane. If weeds do appear in driveways, deal with them at once so they don't have time to set seed; most seedling weeds can be pulled out easily. More established ones will succumb to suitable weedkillers, or can be controlled organically with a fatty acid spray, boiling water, or a flame gun - though these treatments will need repeating regularly. Weedkillers with a lasting effect are the most labor-saving.
