Question: Garden completely to be redone

Hi, I'm sure you will be able to give a complete answer to my dilemma:
the garden of my house by the sea has been left to itself for years, now we would like to take care of it, of course it is completely covered with weeds and the bamboo has been extended everywhere. I was advised to use herbicide.
I wanted to know how it should be used and if it could damage the jasmine and a small palm that I would like to save and, after how long I can replant new plants and hedges.
Moreover, on a good part of the garden's surface we would like to pave resting only the brick, without cementing. Is it possible that weeds grow back between the joints of the bricks?
Unfortunately I hear a lot of conflicting opinions and I am worried because I don't want to damage the trees that my partner's grandparents planted.
Thank you very much for your availability.

Dear Agata,
the herbicides are not all the same; there are total herbicides, those used for example along gravel paths, which are based on salts that do not allow anything to grow for years; if you use such a product in your garden, in addition to removing all the weeds, bamboos and even the plants you want to keep, it is unlikely that anything else will grow for a long time. Other herbicides do not work on plant roots, but only on foliage; it is therefore much easier to be able to direct their action only on the plants we want to destroy. Generally these herbicides must be vaporized on beautiful luxuriant plants, because more leaves have and are easier to let them absorb large amounts of herbicide, which is then conveyed to the roots and therefore, over a few days, causes the plants to dry up, which can thus be eradicated with great ease. Clear that this herbicide should be spread on a little windy day, or else the substance carried by the wind could hit plants that you didn't want to weed. If you spread large amounts of it, do not do it with the sun and the heat, because even in this way you could hit plants that you do not want to weed, as the substance evaporates and remains suspended in the air for a while, thus being able to reach even shrubs that they are located above the turf. The advantage lies in the fact that this type of herbicides, called foliar, have no effect on the plants if they fall on the ground, and therefore once you have eradicated dead plants you can immediately re-seed and replant what you like best. A big problem could be bamboo, which behaves like weeds, that is, even small portions of roots left in the ground, can give rise to new plants. For this reason, generally it is cut at about 40-50 cm from the ground, and it is sprinkled abundantly with leaf herbicide, which in this case is also absorbed by the semi-woody stems.
