How to Kill Weeds & Grass Between Pavers & Bricks With a Weed Torch
Organically Get Rid of Weeds and Grass Between Your Pavers and Bricks -- Easily!
If you love your paver or brick driveway, walkway or pool deck, but hate the little weeds (or grass) that constantly grow throughout, I'm with you! My husband was tired of constantly applying herbicides and chemicals to our weeds and trying all-natural, weaker solutions such as vinegar mixtures; besides, these remedies don't work instantly.
One day he saw a neighbor using what looked like a blow-torch to kill weeds and he immediately ordered one. Most likely because he felt like some sort of super-cool, awesome MAN using fire to kill weeds rather than a spray.
Read on for our experience using a weed torch, which my husband now lovingly refers to as our "fourth member of the family".
Killing Weeds Organically Is Important To Us - A weed torch did the trick!
As you can see, we have a young son that loves playing outside. He's constantly in our pool, which is surrounded by pavers, or riding his bike or kicking a ball on our paver driveway. Sure, he can walk, but since he loves to get down on all fours and explore, he is in constant contact with the pavers (and therefore, all the weeds that sprout up between them).
We've tried solution such as Round Up before, and while they work well, they leave wet chemicals all over the place that our son and dogs can end up touching. They also take awhile to work, sometimes up to 12 hours before the weed actually dies.
We ordered our awesome weed torch and have not looked back! People actually use weed torches for all kinds of things, like for starting fires (for campsites or to burn trash, for example) or to melt ice on driveways and walkways in the winter.
The Weed Torch We Chose To Kill Weeds and Grass Between Our Pavers - Cheap and Effective
We weren't initially sure how well a weed torch would work to get rid of weeds and grass between our pavers, so we opted for one of the cheaper options. It's still very highly-rated (click-through to check out the reviews!) despite its price. We ordered it on Amazon and my husband fired it up after it arrived...being a guy, he immediately got a huge grin on his face when he lit it up (despite my son screaming "fire! fire!" in the background).
This is a very lightweight weed torch that burns weeds and grass between pavers and bricks to the root, instantly. We simply pass this over the weed for a few seconds and it soon shrivels up and dies. If you have pesky weeds that have seeds (like dandelions), this annihilates those seeds instantly, lessening the chance that they'll spring up again.
It uses a 1 lb. propane tank -- we got ours from Target, and I think it cost about $6.
A Weed Torch Costs Far Less Than Harmful Chemicals!
And kills weeds and grass between pavers and bricks instantly, too.
Check Out Our Weed Torch in Action - And see how great and fast it works!
Here is my husband using our weed torch on our back lanai (that's Florida-speak for outdoor, back patio). We tend to get weeds back there because of the way our house is situated; we get full sun on our paver driveway, so we never have trouble with weeds out front. We get direct sunlight in the back of our house, but only for a few hours a day, so it's not enough to keep the weeds at bay between the pavers.
You can see how quickly it torches the weeds (disregard my voice in the background...and my husband's socks).
