    So i would like to wait until all of the yellow pollen that completely covered my freshly mulched beds last year is over with before mulching this year. My question is: Does pre-emergent (in this case snapshot) need to be applied as soon as soil temps are over 55 degrees in garden beds as it does in lawns? Or can it be applied any time to prevent crabgrass ect.?

    should i apply snapshot on the old mulch now, then put new mulch on top of it in a month or so, or wait until i put the new mulch down to put the snapshot?
