    Roundup extended to be exact. Home Depot had a pretty good deal going on it, not sure if its still happening

    Have you tried prayer? Just kidding, that doesn't work on weeds.

    All I can suggest is: weed wack every week (which takes alot of labour time)
    or use a glyphosate when it's above 70 degrees ferenheit/18 degrees celcius, or power wash the cracks out and resand the whole thing.

    I'll bet the client won't give you more money to do any-thing extra, correct?
    I know I've bid lower on estimates in the past, only to discover hidden problems later in the season that cost more in labour time and gas.
    Now I anticipate where the problems will appear.

    A combination of Roundup mixed with a product called Sureguard made by Valent will give you good control.

    Pro-Deuce will give you about 6 weeks worth of control
