Common household remedies request
I just ordered myself a yard of stonedust so I can make some nice, Versailles-like paths in my garden, in between the bricks that are already there. (I don't anticipate changing the layout much, now that I know how the sun works, so it's OK that the stonedust will compact and become semi-permanent (though maybe not)).
The problem is that the paths are now covered with weeds. Removing them sounds like work, and I'm afraid if I just layer the stone dust over them, I'll end up with weeds poking through the stone dust, and that's not what I want! Suggestions?
Maybe recycle some of the trash bags that I used to put leaves in, and bank the house with in the winter? Lay them down flat over the weeds, then cover with the stone dust?
Or am I being obsessive?
