Keep your paths nice

During the Summer months, weeds can get out of control on paths and drives.  Here's how to keep them at bay.

1. Cut grass back to a neat edge using a weeding knife or lawn-edging tool so grass and weeds don't spread across a path.

2. Tackle weeks quickly before they have chance to release seeds.

3. Get a sharp knife and push it as deeply as possible into the gaps in the path to hook out weeds, roots and soil.

4. Use a stiff broom to collect the moss, weeds and soil.

5. If you have a gravel drive, push a hoe back and forth to remove weeds.

6. Apply weedkiller.  If you need to dilute it, use a separate watering can just for chemicals, not for watering.
