A customer i recently gave an estimate to asked me what we could put down in the flowerbed to get rid of the weeds she said " surley there is something we can put down except for Weed - B -Gone!"

Any suggestions?

Here is what we have done on some of our mulch installs


You can also use PREEN (http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-100603759/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053).

The PREEN is put down under the mulch layer after the weeding has been done.

I use Weed B Gone for everything. kills slow though.
After I mulch I put down weed tarp
Never used PREEN, does it work?

PREEN works fine, but as many "weed killers" monitoring is a must.

Snapshot is a better weed pre emergent than preen that is commercial grade not home depot grade
