Can someone tell me what the difference is between weed killers markets 'for the pathway' and general ones.

as an example - you can buy Roundup 'path weedkiller - and you can buy Roundup Roundup Fast Action Ready to Use Weedkiller - as far as I can see they do the same job - is one better than the other?

Also, what's the difference between Roundup and weedol - made by the same company - is it a 'branding' thing?

I notice that Resolve do the same thing - there's actually - weedkiller, path & drive, and also patio and path!

Also - is one brand better than the other?

    Weedkillers described as being for paths, driveways etc not only kill the weeds but they remain in the ground for several months to prevent new weeds growing. 

    Therefore if you use them on your garden the contaminated soil will kill any plants you plant there afterwards ... even weeks or months after using the weedkiller.
