    What do you guys recommend to control weeds that are in flower/veggie beds? Home depot recommended Preen but I am skeptical because many times they are not knowledgeable. What can I get from LEsco to control the weeds? Thanks!

    I'm sorry
    First , are you licensed ?

    In spite of what the label states , I would not use it where the roots of some vegatables .

    The label will tell you how & where you can use it .

    Preen same as Surflan , I believe isnot labled for such use .
    I'm relying on memory so................ :) :) :) :) :) :)

    After the weeds are killed, or pulled out, you can use preen and it will do a good job of keeping the new growthy from weeds that come up from seeds.This is for a landscape bed, I don't know anything you can use on a vegitable garden...
