    I’m yet to try this on my gravel drive, but friends told me about this as it’s better than nasty chemicals. I aim to use this on the pavers but will have to do it in stages as I have a dog. The service was excellent arrived on time and the courier used his/her commons sense and put it behind the garden gate with a note in the door. Very impressed, thank you. I will follow on with the results.
