There's a word to make us groan, but it's important to get rid of weeds because they compete with your flowers for valuable resources such as soil nutrients and water. You should pull out weeds by the roots.  This is easier to do when the ground is damp after a rain or after you've watered. 

If you're trying to get rid of weeds in the cracks of your walkway, patio or driveway, fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and zap them with a strong blast. After a few days, try again if a few have survived. Vinegar won't harm children or pets, and is kinder to our environment than most commercial sprays.
