To fill gaps betwn the large concrete tiles in my backyard, what type of concrete/cement to be used (to stub out weed growth in the gaps)?

They sell fine sand that is especially made to fill cracks in concrete pavers. You thoroughly clean the pavers and cracks, sweep in sand and wet it to set it.

Any kind of grout, cement or concrete that you might try to use will crack and fail because the concrete tiles are not that stable and will shift or move over time. As has all ready be suggest you should consider planting some grass or other plants to keep the weeds out. If you don't like that idea then use pea gravel and weed killer to keep the gaps neat and tidy.

Instead you could try putting fragrant herbs or succulant plants in the gaps, more attractive than boring old concrete.

Water should be allowed to permeate the spaces between the concrete in order to return to the aquifer. To prevent weed growth, first clean out existing weeds, brush salt between the cracks and water it down, and then spread fine builders sand into the spaces between the tiles and water it down.
