    What do you use as a pre emerg for flower beds? We use a Trimec but wanted to know what every one else uses.

    I'm pretty sure you're not using Trimec: 1) in flower beds and 2) as a pre-emergent. Check and get back with us.
    FWIW, we use Snapshot in beds in general, but Treflan in annual beds. A little leery on Snapshot on annuals. NO bad experience first hand, but have heard of some.

    Mulch it and charge them to weed it if some break through.

    Sorry it is Treflan (my bad). Yes there is mulch in the beds and we always spruce them up at least once a year.

    We used snapshot in all our annual beds last year without any problems.

    What can be used for troublesome grass in groundcover. Open areas I just spray roundup on it after we pull some. But groundcover it is troublesome to keep up with it.

    Whats good to use on grass in groundcover?

    About the only thing I know of is Fusilade II. Lesco carries it. Read the label CAREFULLY to ensure that the groundcover you're spraying is listed as being tolerant. Also, be sure the type of grass you are spraying is listed under "weeds controlled."
