    Hi everyone I'm new to this forum, I've recently started my own gardening business which is going relatively well, I am looking for the best way to weed a slabbed area where the weeds have grown inbetween slabs. Are weed burners any good?
    Thanks Matt

    Welcome to Gardeners Corner Matt. :) Good luck with your business. I haven't used one but I understand weed burners don't kill the roots.

      Hi Matt, as a newbie of 4 days to GC it’s great to Welcome another newbie. Never used one but think our driveway with block paving could do with one if they work, I’ll watch the informed replies with interest.

      Tink.

        My Dad had one that I used on his patio , they did the job OK, but the results were short lived.
