can i use this product in the garden

can i use this product in the garden,corn tomates
Asked by: trica
It can used around most established vegetables listed on container. Tomatoes is listed as safe, but I'd contact maker of Preen about Corn or any other non-listed vegetables to be safe.

Will it kill grass

is preen safe around grass....I want to sprinkle whole yard to kill dandilions
Asked by: Lakeshia
It won't kill grass, but it won't kill Dandelions either. it's a per-emergence & there are much better products to use in the lawn areas for your purposes. Any crab grass pre-emergance will work to help prevent Dandelions from sprouting, Once sprouted I use a lawn weed killer liquid spray VS granular.

will this kill already-sprouted maple tree seedlings in beds?

we have so many this year and short of pulling them by hand, we are not sure what to do. we were hoping to find something sprinkle / scatter over so we can just kill them and not any nearby plantings.
Asked by: littlemissdelight
Unfortunately, no it will not. I wish it would but it won't. There is no product out there that will do what you want to do that I know of & I've been a professional landscaper for over 40 years. All you can do is let them grow tall enough, so that they can be identified & then pull each & everyone out by hand.

16 lb. Garden Weed Preventer Drum is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 445.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves an enormous amount of time weeding! Have used this product 2 years in a row now and spend a lot less time weeding. The 2nd year there were less weeds and grasses sneaking up in the spring to clean up before the application of spring preening! I plan my application just prior to a rain shower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Applied to mulch areas in early spring. Container is too large to carry around but is more econo... Applied to mulch areas in early spring. Container is too large to carry around but is more economical than smaller containers. Scoop provided made it relatively easy to apply although it required multiple trips back to the container for refills. After a month I see no evidence of weeds while the daffodil and hosta plantings in the mulch have survived. Very happy with the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not sure what I would do without it... I have a variety of gardens and mulch 'space'. I rake the mulch 'space' (walkways and around flower beds) and then spread the Preen. I try to time the application with Mother Nature's rainfall. There are areas I get weeds but I am looking for the greater good since there are some seedlings I want to grow. In the later spring to summer I will pick the weeds out, rake lightly and spread more Preen. Without it I would be picking weeds FOREVER... Thank you for making this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute MUST!!!! Have been using PREEN for 15 years, at the recommendation of my brother, an urban forester for the city of Herndon, VA. Has been an absolute time-saver!!! I tried another brand - Miracle Grow one year - no comparison - soooo many weeds. I use PREEN on our 2 acre property in southwest PA...I apply every 3 months religiously. I really could not keep up without the help of this product.

Wish I would have used it the past years. Thank you for such a wonderful product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING PRODUCT! I have used Preen for many years to manage my landscaping, both while I lived in NY and now in SC. By spreading Preen to your landscaping area's prior to adding your mulch, it simply eliminates the need to constantly weed the mulched gardens. The product is unbeatable and has no comparative competition. It is simply the BEST. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preen Works!! I apply on my lansdcape rock, I used to have to weed my rock areas and we have a lot as very shady so grass wont grow. I used to spend at least a week just weeding the rock every spring !!!! then thru the summer. Now I apply the Preen early spring and every six weeks after that. I have almost no weeds. It was a big time saver. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could Not Live without this Product We have very large Perennial Garden beds along the perimeter of our property (1+ acre) in Southern New Jersey where it is hot and humid almost 6 mths a year and which ideal growing elements for weeds. Our gardens would not be able to be appreciated if we weren't able to contain the weeds within these beds. Early years of pulling and digging out weeds all summer long became exhausting and we were losing the battle regardless of the time spent. We finally learned of Preen Weed Preventer about 10 years ago and applied it to the garden beds very early in the Spring and then covered in mulch and it was like a miracle --- the perennials thrived and were appreciated without having to fight for blooming space among the weeds. We repeat this process every year since and truly enjoy the gardens as well as the 'free time' we have gained not having to be weeding for hours every weekend.
