Comments Less effective for controlling weeds than portland cement concrete. Preferred placement behind curbs or with other edge restraints. Base design is important for correct load bearing capacity. Include soil sterilization under treatment. Proper structural section and preparation is necessary to prevent cracking and subsequent weed growth. Proper base design and preparation is necessary to prevent cracking and subsequent weed growth. Matching color and pattern for repairs is difficult. In gores or other traffic areas cobble "roughness" must be limited, see detail.
