permeable brick for shaded sidewalk - avoiding weed sprouts
We get alot of weeds in between the bricks on this old walkway that is shaded by poplars and maples. If we get it redone with permeable brick pavers how do you keep weed sprouting and growth down in between the bricks? We let this one go too long this spring and some of weeds got to be 3 and 4 inches tall.
This is our old brick sidewalk in November. We have neatened up the plants and edges but it is still uneven and kind of dangerously so. They are construction bricks and we may reuse them and we are planning now to get this walk redone by a landscape masonry firm. We are considering permeable brick pavers as we are in a stream valley in Fairfax County, Virginia and the runoff flooding needs to be reduced and we want to contribute to that.
We want to plan now on the best solution for avoiding future weeds growth and seek the forum members' advice.
