Default Weeds in Flowerbeds

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.

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

After I mulch I put down weed tarp

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