    Short story. Grass seed in the planting beds. I know, I know. But what now?

    If the grass hasn't germinated yet, get some pre-emergent on those asap. Preen does work good but is kind of expensive.

    Sounds like Preen is being used quite a bit. Is it that effective against weeds and grass-------both?

    I would assume you got seed in the beds from seeding turf areas around the bed. Be careful using Snapshot or Preen (same chemical) around the newly seeded areas until after it germinates and you cut a few times.

    I would just spot spray with round-up, or if seed got in ornamentals use fusilade II, after the seed comes up.

    LMFAO!! I got a new house today, and the guy wanted me to over seed it. First thing he said was "PLEASE, don't seed my beds like the last dumb ***". I had to laugh after that, then seeing your post. :D

    Preen is the homeowners version of snapshop. You are going to pay out the yazoo for preen compared to snapshot. BTW, you cant do any apps if you dont have a liscense. Fines are heavy. ;)
