You could minimize this issue by the use of weedkiller or perhaps by dowsing the weeds with boiling water which is the best, but largely unknown, technique to destroy weeds without chemicals in cases like this. It really isn't an easy task to repair a patio which has deteriorated badly, and removing the old. crumbling grouting is the most challenging job of all. Generally speaking there is no point repairing the joints if the paving slabs are loose and rocking, as it won't make much difference, and getting the entire area re-done is the only possible alternative. If the slabs are pretty firm and stable you can hook out the old mortar with a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire area a good clean-up once you are finished and re-joint the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these types of grout are applied using a dry brush-in process, while others use the wet slurry technique.
