We have used vinegar on our fence line ,works for a while but we just used store-bought i think you can get stronger stuff. Worth a try tho.HTH

I use the "once a year" veg killer. Don't put it near anything you want.

Various methods I have used.
Roundup, weeds came back.
Propane weed torch, weeds came back.
Graded with box and back blades, weeds came back.
Fresh load of gravel, looked great, weeds came back.
Ignored it for several years, now have two clean hard packed gravel tracks with grass down the middle. Very rustic looking , think I will leave well enough alone.

If we didn't have grass growing down the middle, it wouldn't lend to the character of our country living place that gives refuge to tractors, horses & other fine salvageable items. The mower blades move easily down the gravel now that the rocks have settled. Dee

I remember in high school the mother of the young lady I was dating at the time sternly warning us not to go "parking" on any of them back roads with grass growing down the middle. ;>)

I fixed an old rider mower in the barn this past w/e. Gas was atleast 2 y.o., had 4 coffee cans full. Later that day, weeds were brown.

Spray Roundup onto the leaves of the weeds.

Thanks all for the input. I think I'll try the Roundup.
