Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked beautifully in the flower beds My husband Dan and I are Master Gardeners. We were having a garden tour on July 17th of this year. So this spring, after I weeded, I sprinkled Preen around. I did not have to do any weeding in the flower beds. It stopped all seeds from germinating. My husband just cut down all the flowers and I thought I would do some weeding-there were only a couple of them. I certainly will buy more Preen in the spring. I recommend this to everyone. Last year I used this product on a section of our lawn that had an annual weed popping up in it. It also got rid of that pest. We will be using it next spring in a Pocket Park that us Master Gardeners maintain. PS Moat of my pictures of too big to download. October 2, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Smartest Weed Preventer You Can Buy! I have used Preen Weed Preventer for years now. I find myself feeling at home while I'm in my gardens & using Preen in the spring or anytime I build a new garden. The product is just what it claims to be. No gimmicks. The drum size is so convenient to use. The handle makes it so easy to carry around when it is time to use. Now that I'm older & with a bad back, my time in my gardens each day really slows me down. It's so great using Preen because I have trouble bending up & down. I have been gardening for years & I just wish the Preen products were around when I was just starting! I wouldn't rate a product that I don't believe in & this one tops all the charts! Thank You Preen Weed Preventer! September 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The War on Weeds I have landscaping around my entire house and enormous beds. I have landscape fabric down but those pesky little weeds always manage to find their way through and show their ugly little selves. My solution to the "War on Weeds" is Preen Weed Preventer in the 16 lb. drum. I typically pull or dig out the weeds by the root and apply half of the drum in the Spring and the other half in the Fall. Sometimes during the Summer I buy the 5.625 lb shaker for a little touch up. Preen is the best defense against pesky landscape weeds. I have been using it for years! October 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Time-saver I have been using Preen Weed Preventer for man years. It is my go-to product for weed prevention. I usually try to apply it as early as I can in April and it is a great time saver in preventing those pesky weeds from germinating.mi usually make a second application in mid-summer, but this year I just didnt have the time. I found that the Preen really helped throughout the entire season. There were a few weeds that popped up mid to late summer, but not a big deal to just pull them out a little at a time. My only complaint about the product is that there isn't a good applicator included in the large container. I have saved an old container from one of my first Preen purchases and use that to refill and spread the preen. Makes it more manageable. October 5, 2014
