    Am I wrong in recommending vinegar? I believe tech terra has an organic nonselective weed killer, or maybe it was green gaurdian. I don't know, I forget.

    it has to be a certain type, I am not sure which one it is but it is not your typical vinegar. It has to be stronger, I think it's a higher percentage? I need to get some myself soon.

    Personally I like FIRE, use a weed torch they are about $15 at the hardware store. I have one that I have used for years and years

    is there a particular one or kind to look for? What specifications do you want to look for? I am all about fire!

    They have them in almost every hardware store, it has an adapter for the propane tank with about 6 or 8 feet of black hose and a long handle with a regulator and spring handle to BLAST FIRE. The opening at the end is probably 4 inches around. It probably covers an 8 or 10 inch swath. At a slow walk you can cover quite a bit with it pretty quick

    Do not use it on flagstone patios though, it will tear it up

    fire or black plastic if your rocks are not supposed to be black from fire.

    one word of caution about rocks, wait till they are dry or there can explode with the heat!!!! just ask a fire man to tell of what happens to brick and concrete in fire
