    Hi

    I am trying to get rid of these weeds on my driveway.

    I did put down a membrane, but I still have a few weeds.

    I was thinking of getting a weed killer spray hose and getting a weed killer concentrate.

    Any recommendations appreciated.

    Gallup glyphosate. Available on eBay or Amazon. Get yourself a pressure sprayer, about £8 from Screwfix. Mix it up and spray away. You only need to spray the weeds, not the ground around it as it absorbs into the leaves of growing plants and kills the root.

    Spray on a dry day. You’ll see nothing for a few days and then they’ll dry out, yellow and die back. Just keep the spray somewhere handy and spray them as they appear. Little and often is the key.

    Glyphosate breaks down in contact with soil ... It is the only one I am allowed to use in a lot of my garden as I have a river running through and te EA will not allow most others.
