This seems to be a really popular topic on a lot of gardening forums. I've seen quite a few suggesting vinegar also!

I am not a fan of salting. For one, it takes a lot of salt to achieve good control and rain leaches it out of the area and can kill adjoining lawn. And as you've found spreading salt it tough on equipment.

I would recommend looking into Glyfos, a glyphosate herbicide. It is the slow acting, root-killing part of RoundUp and it is considerably less expensive. You can get it from farm seed/chemical suppliers.
