I hate weeds that pop up in the mulched garden areas. I was recommended by a friend to mix the Preen in with mulch before laying it down. In areas already mulched, I just sprinkled on top of mulch staying away from plants as recommended. I ran out and mulched an area without. IT WORKS... 1 year later: NO sprouting weeds in treated areas!

I have been using Preen for over 15 years with good results. However, this year the results were very disappointing. My first application of Preen this year was in early April. (Because we were still having blizzards in March, an earlier application was not possible.) I was weeding my beds throughout May and June. After putting down mulch, I reapplied Preen in early July. I'm still pulling up new weeds, primarily maple trees. I've never been so disappointed with Preen. The guarantee is worthless because I tossed the container and receipt after the application since I had no reason to believe it wouldn't work. I may need to find a different product for my extensive beds.

Does not kill/prevent weeds

By Connie 1108

from Undisclosed

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

I am so very disappointed with your product. I have just completed my fourth weeding session since I applied in the spring! Not only did it not prevent weeds from growing but I now have a NEW breed of weeds growing that I never had before applying Preen. I purchased with the hope that my prior weed growth problems would be solved. I applied as directed with such poor results! I was not going to bother posting a review and just "chalk" this up to a learning experience. However after just completing another "weeding" session in the heat/humidity I couldn't resist and hopefully prevent someone else from making thie same mistake I made in purchasing your product.

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

We moved to the country and gained more weeds than we liked, thistles are growing like crazy. We used Preen at our other home and was very pleased with the results. I can't wait until spring to see the results from this year's application.

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

I don't consider myself an uneducated person, but I continued to be frustrated by preen until I read the label completely! I would weed my flower beds, apply preen and then scratch it in! I was doing it all wrong. Once I learned my mistake I have been very happy with the results. Wish that I could use preen in my gravel walkways.

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

This is a great way to spread the granules. I have bad wrists so shaking the bottle can be a problem. The spreader allows me spread the preen with less stress on my wrists and hands. Recommend this to everyone who wants the spreading to be easier

Preen is the best product for preventing weeds so if you have a large areas or a disability this is definitely a product for you. I have a large area and the product evenly distributes the Preen with little effort on my part - a plus in my book!

Never pull weeds again!

By Bimmers

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

I bought this bottle of Preen on recommendation from my friend, after she heard me complain about the constant weed pulling I was doing. I applied it for the first time a few months ago, and I am so excited that NO weeds have grown! I am going to keep applying this, and I will never have to spend days pulling weeds again!

Disappointing Results

By CaptPaul24

from Undisclosed

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

The product (Preen Weed Preventer) used in our flower beds and shrub gardens was disappointing!!! We followed the manufactures recommendation on the container and the results were extremely poor. The weeds kept coming back time after time again. We applied the product on THREE separate occasions after weeding the gardens completely but each time the weeds came back. VERY FRUSTRATING! At this time I am looking for another product might do the job as advertised. Thank you.

Don't let ease of use fool you

Just because it's easy to use does not mean it works. You will still have weeds and it's a big disappointment and a waste of money.

About 85-90 percent effective

By Mooo

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

We put in an entirely new flower bed so no weeds when used Preen. Sprinkled bed after plants installed. While some weeds are coming up, it is easy to pull those as they appear and most of the area is weed free.

Great job (back,hands,knees) saver!

By KathyJo

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

I've used this product for about 8 years now. Every spring I apply and it lasts through the growing season. You still have to pull and occasional weed here and there but well worth the investment! I like the big 16# tub, it has a nice scoop style applicator. I've had a tubs that I have stored and used over a 3 year period with the same positive preventative protection! Go Preen!

Each fall after first frost and plants are cleared away, I spread Preen in the flowerbeds to prevent weeds from germinating on warmer fall days and I apply again in the spring.

I had finished up weeding a flowerbed before I went on vacation and treated it as directed. That bed was so much cleaner than the other ones I hadn't treated when I returned.

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

Preen helps limit the amount of time I spend with the unpleasant chores in the garden. There are stil 'some' weeds, but they are smaller and weaker when they do appear. I love this around by annuals. I layer this between my mulch and that helps as well!

Easy To Use

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

I own a small nursery and couldn't keep up with out it. I spent years just trying to keep up with the weeds and grass believing that there wasn't anything out there that was worth trying until a friend said she tried your product and it worked so I gave it a try and am very pleased. I still have to do some light weed pulling but its minimal. I use it twice a season and love the ease of application.

Works to a certain degree

By getting older gardener

from Undisclosed

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

I have been using preen in my flower gardens for at least 10 years. It works, but not totally. I still have to weed, but not nearly what I would have to without it. In fact, this year, I was out and didn't get to the store to buy more, and the clover has taken over. It has never been this way when I used Preen.

I have been using Preen for 3 years now - LOVE IT! It really works in keeping the weeds to a bare minimum - even the grass stays out of my beds. I highly recommend this product to anyone who likes to enjoy looking at their garden but not weeding it.

It Really Does Work!

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

I bought Preen a couple of years ago and never really got serious about using it. This year i decided to be adventurous and give it a try. I sprinkled it on as directed in my veggie garden and could not believe how long it has been keeping the weeds from popping up. I love It!

Landscaping time saver!

By Weeded

from Undisclosed

Comments about Preen® Garden Weed Preventer (24-63872):

My husband runs around with the grass seed and it flys everywhere. Then we walk around all of our flower beds and sprinkle the Preen. This keeps the fly away seeds from growing where we don't want it. In the past we had as much grass in our flower beds as there was on the other side of the edging. We have several beds in our yard.
