The lazy person's way to pull weeds from sidewalks and driveways? Instead of using harmful herbicides or struggling to pull them by hand, let black plastic do the trick. Grab some heavy-duty trash bags and place them over the weeded area and put bricks or heavy rocks on top. Leave the bags there for a week and let the hot sun literally bake the weeds away. Be sure to dust off the trash bags and use them for their intended purpose after you've weeded everything.
