Preventing Grass between Slabs

Post by geezer1 » Sat May 05, 2018 5:46 pm

Hi
I've just spent the afternoon digging out grass between the slabs in the garden. It's left deep gaps between the slabs. Anyone know what's best to use to stop the grass growing back again?
Many thanks

Pointing maybe? Mix of dry grit sand and cement, maybe 6:1. Brush it in to the gaps.

pour salt in beforehand (get the savers stuff from the supermarkets) inhibits regrowth.
