I use regular white vinegar from Sam's club (they have 2 big jugs of it for about $4), I put it in a backpack sprayer and go to town! It doesn't keep things from germinating like some of the round-up type stuff, but if I do it mid-morning, and the sun is on it for the afternoon, those weeds are toast! :) I'm sure the more concentrated kind works faster, but I've not had issues with the plain cheap kind!
>I am trying to find an affordable natural alternative to roundup does anybody have some suggestions?
Newspapers or cardboard boxes spread out and bricks to hold them down...
I suppose that would work for small areas but Im looking to treat almost 1.5 acre.

Add some liquid detergent to and a bit of salt to the white vinegar. The soap helps it stay on the leaves, the salt helps burn the leaves. I use it quite a bit with good to great results and it's dirt cheap.....
