    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.
