    What's the best pre and post emergent spray for mulch beds. Pretty wide open beds very few ornamentals? I don't have a Lesco nearby but went online and website is not very helpful.

    I agree there is no single "best pre and post emergent spray for mulch beds" since conditions vary too much between situations/locations.

    Take the time to identify which weeds you need to target. Consider how often you cabn afford to treat, when the application window is open, & depth of mulch before reporting back.

    There are a lot of tools that fit inside the box. But a hammer won't do much good on a Phillips screw.

    Lesco advised us that 0-0-7 pre-em will work for us as the pre emergent.
    And for the post Round-up. Or we can just use strong hands to pull the weeds that come up.
