This is a granulated product. They have a delightful scoop with holes in it, so you can "scoop and scatter" at the same time.

Granulated. I have purchased the larger container that comes with a plastic spreading scoop and there is also a smaller container that is battery powered that makes dispensing the right amount a breeze.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Preen Garden Weed Preventer cannot be applied to grass as turf injury will result. This product is safe to apply on qualifying garden soil around established compatible/recommended plants; when activated it will help to prevent its listed weed seeds (not Dandelion seeds) from germinating 9 - 12 weeks per application. Thank-you!

Answer: 
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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not sure if working or not.. Applied this kind of late in the season, so if it doesn't stop all of my weeds from sprouting I'm OK with that. But what I was curious about is the fact that these granules have not dissipated into the mulch beds yet. It has rained A TON here and I still see them in the mulch beds. May 3, 2016
