Snapshot 2.5 TG

Anyone use this in flower beds & gardens? Applied correctly, it's supposedly safe on ornamentals, perennials, & bushes, correct?

It works great. Apply with a hand spreader. Pricey, charge for it. Remember it's a pre-em, you still have to clean the beds out in the first place.

Agreed. I use it with a little chest spreader which allows me better application rates than I was able to get using a hand spreader and have impressed several customers who fired their previous LCO because he could not keep the beds weeds suppressed It is not perfect but I have noticed a lot less RU gets used on properties where they pay for this service.

snap shot works good but freehand also prevents nut sedge

I preferred free-hand over snapshot. But my supplier stopped carrying it.
