Looks like 2 pounds per square yard is the application rate:

We have nothing but wells in my rural community.  We are all very carefull with everything we put on the ground when it comes to weed control and fertilizer, especially quantity and frequency.

The calcium chloride looks to be an easy option.  Initially it looks like I was searching for the wrong term.  Weed killers get you things like RoundUp.  Soil Sterilization gets you the type of things Mark is using which perhaps wouldn't cause the rust/corosion, etc. that Hal referenced.

Okay, Larry, where is it you're getting this stuff? 

I originally didn't go that route because it was going to be pricey for as much as I need to cover, but other stuff wasn't cutting it.  The only place I know to get that around here is a swimming pool chemical supply.  Translate that to bend over.  It seems to work better than anything else though.  Probably because it's not labeled for that.  If it was, they would probably ban it.   :015:

Just thank God you aren't in California! I think even weeds carry a Proposition 65 warning.

Weed killer here for non-commercial cosmetic use is illegal.

I use road salt on my inter-lock walkway. Works well.

Wow!  I had no idea.  Well I can vouch for Larry's calcium chloride solution.  I just need to find a better supply source.

I'll have to find out from the guy who sprays the driveways. VDOT (Virginia dept. of transportation) has given me a new driveway, new gate and new fence, in addition to repaving my existing driveway due to a very old encroachment to my property
