I had a quick look on the Internet just to see what one I normaly use as I have forgot it's name duh.I came across this and wondered what you thought.
It sounds like a good idea and might keep the cats away at the same time.
morddwyd If resolva kills dandelions then it might be the one. I have several large dandelions and they are growing up betewwen the bricks in the drive so can't get at the roots with a hoe or spade. Is resolva cat friendly, don't want to harm our cat.
Legolas - for weedkilling on a path you need two effects. You want the excisting weeds kiled but you also want to the weedkiller to have a residual effect, so that new weeds don't grow in the months to come.
Glyphosate weedkillers will kill the existing plamts effectively enough, but they have no residual effect.
I reckon BT's suggestion of Pathclear is your best choice for both effects. Nothing will prevent future re-growth for ever, but in my experience Pathclear has a residual effect that should see you clear for the rest of this season.
Guys an interesting thread.I am no gardener but recently on holiday with sister in law i noticed her garden teeming with dandelions.
It is quite a large one so looks unsightly,what is the best/most effective weed killer to use,so i can pass on the info.
