I've just discovered what everyone under the age of 30 probably knew already. :wink: To weed a brick or slab paved driveway you need a good diggling tool and a skateboard. Sit sideways on the skateboard and slowly roll along in nice neat rows. Saves the knees, the back, and the sheer exhaustion of geting up and down over and over to move location. Also, it keeps you organised and focused on the job in a systematic way. 8) And eeeh it were grand rolling back down t't driveway when it wer done!

Even without a photo, this post has put a smile on my face ! I'll have to think of a variation on that theme....that would work on gravel !

What about a go-cart?? It might not have engine propultion, but it could handle the gravel, especially on a slope.
