i installed a sandy beach on a lake front and i was wondering what is a good pre-emergant for this sand since there will be kids playing on it and run off into the water, i have been using round-up but every week i come back and there are just as many weeds, just differant ones, what would you guys do?<p>----------<br>CJC Landscape Management<br>Winter Haven, Florida

If there are ANY fish, aquatic life at all then you WILL KILL them with Pre-em. Sorry, but you need to learn more before doing this type of work.

I dont mean to be a weenie, but read some material about what you are doing, If not please read Rachel Carsons Silent Spring, a book about what can happen if you spray stuff and don&quot;t know what you could do(DDT spraying in the early years)<p>----------<br>grasskutter@cs.com<br>
