First of all, if you are going to be applying any pesticides (this includes RoundUp) you need to have a pesticide license and insurance unless you are doing it at your own house.

Secondly, what do you mean by "stone" driveway? Is it gravel, concrete, pavers???

Roundup is post-emergence only. He was asking what he can use to prevent weeds.

If your talking about burning the weeds out with a weed eater then I dont think round up is a step backwards.I spray all my properties monthly and dont seem to have a problem.The cost is completly covered in the fact that I have almost zero line triming.Out side of mowing line triming takes the most time on most properties.If we were talking about turf then a pre emergent might work.or talking about a 1/4in.-1/2in.gap in between pavers.even if you kill the seeds every day they'll just blow right back in the cracks.I could be wrong but I think you'll waste more chemical in the long run with a pre emergent

If you go through all the hoops, classes, tests and insurance bills that would make you legal to apply herbicides like this, you would already know the answer in a state like Connecticut. You don't like Roundup? Why? You a tree huggin organic person? Vinegar is more toxic than Roundup, and it never breaks down.... but it's organic, so it must be safer....

Go to Home Depot. Ask those tools this question.... you will feel at home with them. I'm a certified applicator, and I'm not going to give you any advice, that's for darn sure.
