How to Stop Weeds from Growing in the Cracks in the Driveway


This article is designed to help the novice person fix the weeds that keep growing up through the cracks in your driveway. I tried this and it has worked perfectly.

Things You'll Need

  • Weed and Grass Killer
  • Landscaping fabric
  • Flat Screwdriver
  • Scissors
  • Lanscaping Staples
  • The first step in this process is to locate all the major cracks in your driveway where weeds could grow through. Now we need to get a good weed killer and spray all the cracks down whether or not there are any weeds that you can see. The reason for this is that many times small seedlings are sprouting that you can not even see.

  • Now we let all the weed killer dry and then we start cleaning out the cracks with the flat screwdriver. Clean the dirt out so it is a clean crack. This is very important so our patch fits perfect.

  • Next we need to take out the landscaping fabric and cut small strips that are 1 inche wider than the crack that you are working on. Now you wedge the fabric down the crack with the screwdriver. Most of the time if the crack is narrow enough the fabric will stay put in the crack without additional things to hold it down. I had a larger crack in which I had to use landscaping staples to hold it down. Now we should be all set to enjoy a weed free driveway!
