The gardening gurus added: “Vinegar is super effective when dealing with smaller weeds, not so much with bigger ones.  

“When applying it to weeds, make sure not to spill it on any neighbouring plants, as it will burn them as well.”

Salt can also be used as an “effective” method of eliminating paving weeds.

The experts explained: “Salt has been used for centuries as a herbicide because of how effective it is. 

Baking soda is also a good natural weed killer, according to experts.

The gardening pros said: “To make use of this method, scatter some baking soda in bigger quantities all over the block paving. 

“Then with the help of a broom, sweep the soda into the cracks where the weeds are growing out of. 

“Add the finishing touch by spraying water all over your patio, using a hose. 

“This method is most effective during spring and autumn.”
