    Jeyes Fluid works for me every time. Mix with water, spray on and leave for a few hours then hose off.

    Cheers,

    either that or we ( our company ) used to use amicide, same as above mix with water and spray, just be very carefull with the granueles as they CAN harm you, failing that really strong mix of salt water :)

    Buy some Glyphosate based weedkiller from an Agricultural supplier, something like RoundUp which is a wide spectrum herbicide and will kill everything. You'll need such a weak concentration of it that it won't stain the paviours. Are they brick or concrete?

    I've got one of those attachments that go on the end of my Karcher to blast everything away without making a mess, and more importantly, no hosepipe ban! :laugh:

    Roundup is the best herbicide on pretty much all weeds.
