Landscapers do their very best to make sure their clients' lawns look great. They cut at the proper height with nice laser lines and everything gets nicely edged. Then they step back to admire their work and hope their clients feel the same way. And chances are, they do.
But I found out what really makes the men of the house really happy. Sure the lawns look great but driveway crack weeds are a constant source of irritation because they are hard to get at and they come back.
So in comes landscape pro Vas with his line edger turned on the side and on low power. This destroys all crack weeds; just make sure you wear eye protection and close your mouth because often there are stray pebbles that get propelled out of the cracks.
Do this on lower power so you don't blow out your own windows or damage parked cars nearby.
I expect to do this periodically throughout the season but it's better than pouring down nasty chemicals that wash off into our fish habitat.
If your driveway has nasty crack weeds, line trim them out or give me a call.
