Is salt the best way to destroy weeds in gravel?
Previous owners had the front garden designed to look like a pebble beach with 'groynes' of sleepers lying down and pebbles large at the wall graded to small at the front... it looks lovely BUT over the 12 years we have been here Violets and many other wild flowers have taken over.... to start with I left them as they were pretty and only a couple... MISTAKE.... now the pebbles are almost hidden and it just looks like junk yard. I do NOT want to use weed killer as there are ornamental grasses and bamboo intentionally planted in the garden... I have heard of sprinkling salt to kill unwanted weeds... I tried boiling water, but it took forever and as soon as the leaves had crunkled and died - another lot reappeared. HELP I want my beach back
