1. If you don’t want anything growing there and don’t mind chemicals, then Roundup would probably work.

2.  I’m not sure if there is an easy way unfortunately.  Is it something that a weedeater could handle or are there shrubs in there?  Those you would probably need to cut down and dig out if you no longer want them there.

Answer to both- hire someone else to do it for you, then you sit inside and have a glass of wine 😉

But seriously- I know they make sprays that should kill the weeds between the pavers, but you might have better luck pulling up as much as you can and then spraying to kill the root systems.  To get rid of large stuff you may need to rent a machine- check out your local home depot or Lowes, sometimes these places will rent you what you need so you don’t have to buy.  That is, if you think they are too big for the average weed whacker…

We used Ortho-Weed B Gone to get rid of our weeds, it is easier on grass.  If you are using it in an area without grass, Roundup would be fine (but it does kill grass so don’t use it in a grassy area).

LOL greenleaf!

For the weeds in between your pavers, roundup works great. As for the larger weeds…good old elbow grease or some tools that Lowe’s or Home Depot provides! They’re pretty helpful there to those who aren’t sure what they’re looking for.
