Our driveway is block paved and it has unsightly weeds and moss popping up between the cracks.

I have heard about companies who can lay a protective layer on top of the bricks to stop weeks poking through.

Is this a good idea, and is there a certain product I should be looking for?

Weeds and Block paving

Reply from Jason Lock

In landscaping I have not heard of this - but thats not to say it does not exist. I would be wary of applications like this as as it may affect the permiablity of the blocks when it rains which is now a leagl requirement.

It may be that they are actually applying a residual herbicide which effectively caps of the block paved area, which prevents weeds germonating on the surface but also prevents any weeds coming up form the ground below.

I hope this helps

Thanks Jason.

I'll ask the companies what they use.
