I second the boiling water idea, works great on annual weeds in tough
places, too (rock mulch, path ways, bricked areas, side walks). Trouble is
with ants, you will never be rid of them. I have just allowed them to nest
where they want. The nests tend to move around a bit.
As far as cypress, it seems a rather pricey way to go,but more importantly
it will rob the soil of nitrogen as it breaks down. May I suggest oak
leaves, straw, aged wood chips or pine bark?
good luck, Lisa at the Hare's Breath in Mpls.
