Block paving - How do I weed it?

Our neighbours use something like this http://www.coopersofstortford.co.uk/coopers-of-stortford-electric-patio-clearing-brush-prodst08814i/

It seems to work very well. 

We have gravel.

Dovefromabove would not you have to protect the roots from frost or wet?

They don't survive in very cold winters, but after mild winters I frequently find them regrowing in the spring

Think I'd paint it with some glyphosate.  The amount needed for that small sucker won't affect any large tree it's joined on to.
