Questions & Answers

Can this be applied over mulch?

Asked by: Dhrey
I've always had great success by applying this product directly to the ground prior to spreading mulch. Seemingly, applying any product on top of mulch would dramatically lessen it's effectiveness.

Does this product just prevents weeds or does it also kill weeds?
Asked by: Oly
I have found that it only prevents weeds from growing. You need another product (or hand dig up weeds) to kill existing weeds. Perfect time to add Preen is early spring, after you've tilled your soil, added mulch, and are ready to watch your plants grow. Also a reapplication every 3 months is recommended, per product instructions.

Its not review but quick question. Can we apply preen when putting grass seed in fall basically after aeration and seeding??
Asked by: dave
Thank you for your inquiry! Preen Garden Weed Preventer cannot be applied to lawns, it is only meant to be applied in gardens. If applied with grass seed it will prevent the grass seed from germinating.

16 lbs. Garden Weed Preventer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1491.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from still see weeds popping up!... still see weeds popping up!
Date published: 2019-07-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great! Just as it said it would. I have been using Preen and Green for years and it works wonderful! It works best in the flower garden if you put it on in the early spring around plants that are at least 3" tall. Lightly scratch it in the ground and water or put it on before a rain shower. It won't work as well if you put it on and then put mulch over the top. If your going to add mulch then put it on the top of the mulch layer and scratch it in and water. If you need to, say if you have a lot of rain, then reapply after about 2 months, again take it in lightly and water. I've also put it in my vegtable but not until the plants are up at least 3 inches. I think people who have had poor results probably haven't read the instructions, this is crucial!

I use it in all of my wifes flower beds and it really does keep the weeds down to a bare minimum. Great stuff. The key is once you put it down it will work as long as you don't disturb the soil. If you disturb the soil, as in digging a hole , etc, then it breaks up the chemical barrier that had been on the surface of the soil and you will need to spread out another layer of Preen to the affected area. Great stuff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of my money Tried this stuff a few times and each time same results. Weeds thrive on this stuff, never seen one dead weed. Just a lot more weeds. This years tried it in a much smaller area and same results. Weeds was less until I put preen on it than holy smokes they weeds are horrible. Pretty sure they put some kind of fertilizer in this stuff because weeds love it!

I really noticed a difference this Spring. I did an initial weeding in early April then applied the Preen. The subsequent weedings were considerably less than what I had to do normally.
