I've got a rock area around the back of my house that is getting overrun by weeds. The reason the weeds are able to grow there is because the weed barrier has shifted some so there are gaps between some of the sheets, there are holes in it, and some soil has settled on top of the barrier and underneath the rocks. I'm thinking that I'd like to replace the weed barrier to ultimately keep this under control, but I'd like to kill off any weeds that are there first before moving the rock and laying the barrier.
I've tried using Round-Up, but the weeds will usually come back within a few weeks. I've also tried to pull them to keep them under control, but that's getting tiring. I was thinking, since nothing is supposed to be growing there anyways, what if I just bake them out? How would I go about doing this and what supplies should I pick up for this?
