It should have been relatively easy, the area was quite well watered since we have had torrents of rain almost every other day. But the rain just anchored the various plants more firmly and lengthened the root systems. My ’just pulling plan’ did not have a chance. I tried an old kitchen knife, a pair of long bladed shears, my fingers, tips of the garden fork. None of these were at all efficient or good enough.
The installation of black plastic or better yet Landscape Fabric, a geotextile for weed control can be used. Weed control fabrics are porous and their permeability allows good drainage. This fabric is used around flower and tree plantings. It is just as useful under paving stones. Under the stones it will help, perhaps not a hundred percent. Dirt and weed seed accumulation in the cracks over all seasons might have you on your knees again.
