Use the cooking water from the potatoes as a herbicide.
Weeds, for example, between the tiles, is easy to remove by spraying on pure vinegar.
Weed between tiles is ugly. Sprinkle salt generously over and all the weeds die.
When removing grass, weeds, etc between the pavement, I always sit on a cabinet trolley, a skateboard can, you can then easily move your own and you're a little higher.
With paintersfohn the weed is a less fun drawing but adequate and for a long time.
