Weeds can ruin a garden in a variety of ways. Weeds can hog all of the nutrients given out by your compost and soil, causing your plants, fruits and veggies to suffer as a result. Weeds can also crowd out your plants and confine them to a space that will not allow them to grow and flourish. Concern Weed Prevention Plus for gardens uses the power of corn gluten to prevent weeds from sprouting and robbing your plants of valuable nutrients. Stop weeds and dandelions before they start with this natural product. The Concern Weed Prevention Plus harnesses the power of corn gluten meal (100%), creating a powerful weed prevention fertilizer. Up to 90% effective weed control in the first year on dandelions and crabgrass. For use in flower gardens, vegetable gardens and in landscaped areas around trees, shrubs and ornamentals. Will not burn. Concern Weed Prevention Plus is composed of 100% granulated corn gluten meal. Children and pets can play on the lawn immediately after application since Concern weed prevention plus kills only the root of sprouting seeds, it can be used with confidence around established plants, including transplants, flower beds, shrubs and roses. When your flower or vegetable sprouts have true leaves, it is safe to apply Weed Prevention Plus even up until the day of harvest.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This helps keep lawn and garden srpouting fewer weeds without chemicals. I have used this before and will use it again to prevent the weeds seeds that come in by wind and animal from sprouting. Fewer weeds means less work. September 5, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good stuff This granular herbicide is good for control of weeds in Bermuda grass. It is especially good for Poa Annua. August 11, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This product works very well as a crabgrass preventer. This product was applied to the yard which has about 60% established grass and 40% crabgrass. The prevent has kept the crabgrass from growing but not so well against other weeds. March 27, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It is a PRE-EMERGENT, not a weed killer!!! Think before you write a review. For those of you complaining that it did nothing for your dandelions and such, it won't. It only prevents *NEW* weeds from germinating. If you don't understand what that means; it kills the BABY WEEDS after they start to sprout. I've used it and it does what they claim. I will certainly use it again. Granted, it is not and strong and effective as the commercial pre-emergent that a professional landscaper might use, but it is much safer. October 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This does supply nitrogen The "description" part of the product page states "Fertilizer; No", which is not true. In fact it's a large part of why I decided to buy this, but of course mainly for the pre- emergent aspect. The info on (I think!) IOWA State Ag Dept said that the bonus of their discovery was that the corn gluten meal is a high nitrogen fertilizer. So, it does both: fertilizes, and it control the weeds by stopping the seeds from sprouting July 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really Works I was apprehensive when I purchased this product. Even more so when I read its contents. I spread it by hand and waited a couple of days to see how it worked. I was very pleased as I watched the diseased grass start to become healthy. A side effect was that the adjacent areas also look healthier. The cost is a bit steep but the results are outstanding.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic natural weed control We have not had a new weed in our yard since using this weed preventer. It's super easy to put on and we love that it is natural and not harmful for our dog. June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Weed Prevention The store notification of product was timely. Easy to pick up item. June 2, 2015
