    I am wondering is there something I can use as a pre-emergent for weeds in my beds. I know to spray round-up but what can be put down to help fight the growth as a pre-emergent. Is there a granual or pre-emergent spray that anyone uses. This is for my personal use but I figured the area of the forum gets more traffic and people would have better info. Thanks.

    The May issue of Turf has a write-up on herbicide treated mulch. OSU is conducting test.
