Whats the best way to get rid of big clumps of grass between paving slabs quicktime? ive tried weedkillers, it dies but then thats hard getting it up then more grows!



You can buy a weeding knife to remove weeds, including grass, between paving stones though I find the grass pulls out easily enough it is the likes of dandelions that can be a problem. You might want to consider having the gab between your slabs mortared so that nothing can grown.

I doubt weed killer will work on clumps of grass, I bought a great long handled tool for this last year its got a narrow steel bush with a blade on one end. I love it as I dont have to bend down to clear. Its on my photos and on the garden tools page if you want to see it

Use a path weedkiller such as Pathclear or Bayer Path Control - apply to the cracks and gaps in the paving. Contains something that will kill what's there, and prevent regrowth for the season.
