What if anything do you put in your garden isles that doesn't interfear with your wheelchair?

Right now I have nothing,just use a dose of roundup when the weeds get real bad.I don't like to do that but I have no choice. Tried to go the vinager route but could only find the common stuff not the strong 5 percent solution to kill the weeds. Store vinager does work put requires buying a large amount. By gardent is large 40x85
My isles and beds are permanent to avoid the problem of repacking the isles down.

Would sawdust work? Possibly discourage the weeds? I have never tried this but I am planning my gardens with accessibility in mind. My DH is on and off with his back and I want to make sure that he has access to the entire yard. I eventually want to use concrete screenings in the pathways but cannot afford that now.

Sawdust isn't that great.I have pine sawdust in my blueberry patch and it just clumps up and makes the wheeling thru a lot harder.Where the sawdust is packed down due to age it isn't that bad.Though weeds do grow thru the old and newer sawdust.
At this moment I'm thinking of just growing grass in my isles as I slowly convert by garden to raised beds.
