    who here offers pre-emergent application as part of you landscape maintenance services? What pre-emergent do you use for landscapes consisting of woody shrubs and herbaceous perennials and annuals?

    My previous reply did not go through. We have had great results using Snapshot granular pre-emergent on new installations as well as topdressing beds in the spring for maintenance contracts. It has a broad control of grass weeds as well as some broadleaf control as well.

    I use a mix of gallery + prodiamine. Covers both grassy and broadleaf weeds.


    Like all pre ems timing and watering will play a big part in successful repression of weeds.

    Thanks for the info. After calculating how much you need, how do y’all apply it amongst established ornamentals?
