    What is the best preemergent to use in flower beds? I live in West Tennessee. I'm not sure if that makes much difference.
    Also what is the best spring pre-emerge for lawns? I have been told to use Galley in the beds and Pre-M on the lawns. I just wanted to know if there was anything else that worked a little better or just as good but cheaper.

    snapshot for beds and Baricade for lawns are what I like. may not be much cheaper and the Baricade is going to cost a little more but will work better than Pre-m IMHO

    We use Snapshot in the beds and Lesco Pre-M for lawns.

    A combination of Gallery and Barricade in beds as a spray costs much less than than Snapshot and you can dial in the amount of each product you want, more Gallery for broadleaves, more Barricade for grassy weeds. We use it every 3 months in the rainy Northwest with very good results. A backpack with a broadcast nozzle at 1 gl. of finished mix 1000/sq. ft. should do a great job.
