Weeds in Brick Path - Baking soda neutralizes the ph in the soil and nothing will grow there. Use baking soda in a 6" wide area around all of the edges of your flower beds to keep the grass and weeds from growing into the beds. Just sprinkle it onto the soil so that it covers it lightly. Do this twice a year - spring and fall.
Disney world does this! Lowes sells the 4 to 6″ round PVC pipe with holes already drilled. Purchase an end cap, fill with rock, soil, and plant. You can put these in the center of a very large pot to stabilize, and add amazing height and color to a container that has trailing plants (no end cap or rock needed if you are placing in a container) @ Do It Yourself Remodeling Ideas
This really works - no weeds for two years!! The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead.
