Boiling salt water is the quickest, safest and cheapest way to kill weeds in a walkway or patio. Just bring a large pot of water to boil and add 1/2 to 1 full container of salt. ( I use the cheapest kind I can find). Once the salt is completely dissolved use a pitcher to pour the water into the cracks were the weeds keep growing, after a few hours you can pull out the wilted, dead weeds.

I pour salt into the sidewalk cracks periodically throughout the growing season, especially after a rain storm. The saltwater dehydrates any roots under the walk and the straight salt keeps any roots from coming back. This is safe to use around children and pets, and won't hurt the environment. I even use it on the walkway between my flower beds and it doesn't hurt any of the established plants.

I know it sounds kinda scary, but black racers are wonderful to have around. They take care of all the other icky creatures that you really don't want in and around your house. In some areas of the country black racers (sometimes called rat snakes) are actually protected. So live and let live, if there is a lot of activity around their home, they will move on, but be happy knowing that you won't have to worry about poisonous snakes, or rats and mice anywhere near your home.
