Ok, first of all i HAVE read all the "search" threads on this topic. My question was not answered adequatly there. So i will ask it here. I have a commercial account that has a decent sized bed across the whole front of the store. Grass is directly next to it. The beds are full of ground cover that has yet to expand. there are about 50 shrubs of different sorts as well in there. Every week i spend atleast an hour pulling damned weeds. And, when i am done i do not believe that it is very "professional looking". What can i use to stop the weeds from coming up. One of my competitors has absolutly PERFECT beds. I have yet to find even ONE weed. I looked too. I worked last year with a "friendly" competitor. I gave them some sprinkler and fert business. they did an existing weed spray and a pre-emergent. I was not happy with the results so i asked them to reapply. Needless to say i have spent every week pulling weeds for an hour or so. What can i use? I do NOT have a chem license. One guy from another company said to use round-up and Casseron 4G. I know casseron well and am guessing the 4G is some potent stuff. Before i apply, i want to ask you the experts for your professional and experienced opinions. Thanks all.
