I posted a thread about eating squash leaves on the food forum that I'm a member of - we had an interesting reply from a member who has lived in South Africa and says that it's a staple part of the diet there http://www.wildfood.info/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=13413&p=366339#p366339

Grass in block paving

Well, weedkillers will kill it, but it'll still be there - you can wait until it's so dead that the roots relax their hold and the winter wind and weather clears most of it away - but it'll look scruffy until then and it'll still need clearing up. 

This may be of some help http://landscapejuicenetwork.com/forum/topics/how-to-keep-block-paving-weed-free
