Questions & Answers

will it kill your grass

looking for a good weed killer that won't kill your grass
Asked by: HomeDepotCustomer
This will not kill grass. It doesn't "kill" anything; as a pre-emergent, it keeps seeds from sprouting.

Does it work well in a stone bed

We have a large swing set on top of pea stones and weeds are comming up sporaticly. Wondering if this product would work well to control
Asked by: VT15
Yes. Just sprinkle it around every 4-8 weeks and you should be pleased with the results. Remember it won't have any effect on weeds already sprouted but it keep any seeds with which it comes in contact from sprouting. I have used it in gravel beds and in and around an area in which I have some river stones (not quite the size of the palm of your hand) and it's made life MUCH easier.

If this product is applied after all the weeds have been pulled in the spring ....will it prevent reseeding of the weeds I pull? Or....does it only work before any weeds have germinated?
Asked by: Carol
This will prevent the reseeding of the weeds you have pulled. It prevents the seeds from germinating in the first place. You have to remember that sunlight and weather will eventually break it down so follow the manufacturer's suggestion as to how often to reapply it. I use it on the easement behind my house and it cuts down on the weeds reseeding themselves by easily 90%.

Can you use Preen extended control around ornamental grasses in landscaping.

Can you use Preen extended control around ornamental grasses in landscaping.
Asked by: Fran
You can use this around ornamental grasses or any other plants in your landscaping. This will have NO impact on any plants or seedlings. This will prevent any seeds that have not yet sprouted from sprouting.

4.93 lbs. Extended Control Weed Preventer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 277.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preen is a “must have” item especially if you do most of your own gardening work, and this new 6 ... Preen is a “must have” item especially if you do most of your own gardening work, and this new 6 month version will get you all the way through the growing season. If you are not familiar with Preen, it works by preventing germination of seeds - so you do need to be careful where you apply it. For example, if you have annual flowers that re-seed themselves, you won’t want to use Preen in those areas. I have used it for many years around rose bushes and other perennials, under trees, on gravel pathways, etc. It really does work when applied properly. As with any type of weed or plant suppressant it’s important to follow the use and safety directions, and these are all included in a surprisingly complete booklet attached to the re-usable container. There you will find instructions for use in various situations, as well as a list of the weeds it controls and the plants it is safe to use around. I consider Preen to be an indispensable garden “tool” and unless you really enjoy pulling weeds, I bet you will too.

Lid wouldn't budge. Emailed product support and was told that a batch of containers went to stores with the lids accidentally heat sealed shut and I should take it back and get another jug but check first to make sure the lid would unscrew. Not impressed. Then before I took it back, I opened the attached documentation and read that the product is not intended for use in vegetable gardens. The original Preen in the yellow containers is. Even more not impressed. I'll stick with the yellow container and re-apply every three months with a product that works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointed I have been using the regular Preen for many years and always had good results. When I discovered the Preen Extended Control, I was expecting to have good results and saving myself the time to not have to put the product down two times per growing season. I put the Preen Extended Control down in March and followed application instructions as per usual. We live in MD, zone 7a. We have over 2 acres of property and several large flower gardens. My flower gardens have always been beautiful in the past, but this year the weeds are overwhelming! Attached is a photo of just one small area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied User I did the same to my garden this year as I’ve done years before starting with the weeding. For the most part my gardens were pretty good controlled from weeds. This year is an exception. I weeded as usual, Then as a preventer, I put on your product. Unfortunately it made my gardens worse. I have never had this many weeds before using this product. And that is just my opinion. I will never use it again.
