Also know, how do I kill grass in my gravel driveway?
Fill a pump sprayer or spray bottle with white vinegar. Add a few drops of liquid dish detergent to the spray bottle or about 1 teaspoon to the pump sprayer to help the vinegar coat the surface of the grass. Spray the grass thoroughly with the vinegar to saturate it completely. Boil a large pot of hot water.

How to Keep Weeds Away from Your Gravel
- Weed the area thoroughly yourself. Before you put the gravel down:

- Use salt for your weed control.
- Talk to your Lawn Doctor lawn care professional.

- Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil during the heat of the day.
- Fill the spray bottle with 15 to 30 percent acetic acid vinegar.
