I have a brick walkway through my lawn and weeds and grass are growing in between. i have tried weed and grass killer but it ends up seeping into the lawn and doing damage. Any great ideas?

Boiling water will kill the grass and weeds on contact. Once you've removed them use a pre emergent product such as the corn gluten meal based Preen. As long as the pre emergent does not rinse down into the lawn, it won't harm the lawn. (Even if it does, it won't kill the lawn, just turn it greener because corn gluten is a source of nitrogen!)
