Question: How to get rid of weeds in driveway before putting stone down for cover?

Answer: You could use a nonselective herbicide containing glyphosate, read and carefully follow all of the label directions for use including any waiting period so the chemical has time to move from the foliage to the roots where it kills the weed. After spreading the gravel you may want to use a pre-emergent along the edges to prevent crabgrass and annual weeds from popping up. Corn gluten meal will do for that, read and follow the label directions.
