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.

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

Bought this to use on a bed that is notorious for weeds and we've had so much rain in the Spring, I think every weed seed in the soil sprouted. Use this and so very much better.

Saying Goodbye to Weeding

By Tulie

from Undisclosed

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

I am amazed that this product does what it says it will do. My flower beds have never looked better. Weeding in the areas that are 'Preened' has become a thing of the past. The only proviso: As stated on the container, remember to 'rePreen' after disturbing the soil because those little weeds are just waiting to find a way to 'escape.'

I use tis in product in my flower gardens to prevent weeds from growing. When I am starting new flowerbeds I put this down and then through out the season I use it my other existing beds, This product saves e a lot of time, instead of always weeding, Iam now able to enjoy my flowers more.

Preen Garden Weed Preventer Drum

By Gini

from Undisclosed

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

I buy a container this size each year. I use it in the spring when I'm first cleaning up my beds from winter to prevent as many seeds from sprouting as possible. Then, each time I weed I use it the areas I have been disturbing the dirt. Then, again in the fall when I may be transplanting some plants or putting in new fall plants.

Must be precise w/ application.

By Carolsita

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

The spreader cap helps with application. You must be very careful with dispersing the product, if it gets on a plant it will kill it. Does a great job with weed control.

Easy to use

By BEVV

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

We have a lot of garden area, and as I get older, I find that weeding is more of a chore. Preen really helps! After I clean out a garden area, I spread Preen and have almost no weeds after that.

Preen weed preventer

By sylbil

from Undisclosed

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

Have been buying this product annually for over 5 years. I use it in the flower beds around mid April through May. I have tried other products in the past, but keep coming back to Preen. Even though some weeds do appear throughout the season, they are minimal and manageable (have to remember that Preen prevents germination, but not rhizomes or already there undesirable plants)

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

I used this product on dandelions and other weeds in my lawn and it worked! It worked so well, that it burned out my grass and it's taken 2 months for my grass to fill in... the good news... no more dandelions! I sure will read directions from now on!

I love preen

By Velma

from Undisclosed

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

I really do love preen. Usually I weed in the spring, put down preen and have to do very little the rest of the season. This year it's been unusually wet and the maple trees are sprouting up everywhere. So hasn't been quite as effective this year. But I still love it!

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

Having spent hours on my hands and knees pulling and digging weeds, I get great satisfaction from sprinkling Preen Weed Preventer around the plants when I'm done with an area knowing that my hard work will last for months. Even if I don't get mulch down, very few weeds crop up and my plants look fantastic!

I did try this product did not work well at first but after constant trials and obstacles it finally worked, It worked well enough that would recommend to others and spread the word as it is good to have a weed killer or weed preventer in this case.

Preen Forever

By grammy Caro

from Undisclosed

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

I was first introduced to preen about 20 years ago when I had a professional landscaper put in flower beds around my home. He used Preen and I was amazed that we had just beautiful flower, no weeds all summer long. I asked him what he used and he told me about Preen. Since then I has used Preen every Spring when I am working on my gardens. A one time overhaul, Preen and I am good for the season.-NO WEEDS!

Well worth the money

By Kairouan

from Undisclosed

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

I have used this in the past with some flowers and loved it, so this year I tried it in the fruit and vegetable garden I started. Since the garden is 50x100' I knew I didn't want to weed that whole thing. I used Preen and it has worked wonderfully. Now if they can make it get rid of crab grass, not my lawn grass, just the invasive crab grass, my garden would be perfect. I still need to put another dose on since my initial dose and it's still working great. I love it and will always recommend it.

Great Results

By Dee D

from Undisclosed

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

My sister suggested I try Preen Garden Weed Preventer for Flowers and Shrubs in the new Memory Garden we had planted in honor of my daughter to prevent unwanted weeds. I bought the shaker bottle and used it per the instructions on the bottle and followed with a good layer of mulch. I was amazed at the results! I have several other small flower gardens and had not used any weed preventer in them. The difference was astounding! I was having to weed the other gardens at least twice a week to keep, but not the Memory Garden. I absolutely love this product and have recommended it to friends and neighbors who admire the great results I have gotten with it.

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

As an advanced Master Gardener while cleaning some flower beds this spring, decided that it was time to put a pre-emergence type weed preventer down, then I could enjoy looking at the beautiful bounty instead of constantly weeding, so Preen to the rescue. Thanks Preen!

Great reliable product with fast results!

By Mattski

from Undisclosed

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

I have used preen for many years and never sustained damage to mature plants. have used PREEN for atleast 20 years even before its' popularity started. What I like best is that it's easy, fast, safe, saves time, and makes you look like a pro! I would never plant an area, have it picture perfect, and NOT protect with the one application of PREEN that last 3 months for virtually a weed free zone. It works on any surface from open soil, mulch,rocks to even rubber mulch. If you use it consistently after 1 year's growing season of application, you will get less than 5% of your weed population as compared to if you left it untreated. It costs so much less than it would to pay someone to weed or to use a weed killer ( not to mention less chemicals overall being used!) Who wants to or likes to weed?? I don't, never will, and do not have to with PREEN!!

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

I have used the Preen Weed Preventer for the last 2 years and won't be without it. It is such an easy way to control weeds and unwanted plants. I simply apply it according to the directions and forget it until it is time to reapply to catch the next batch of weeds. It sure is easier than pulling weeds by the hours like I used to do.
