Pre-Emergent Herbicides

Pre emergent herbicides are chemicals that prevent the germinating weeds from establishing in the flower beds or lawns unlike post emergent herbicides. These herbicides control grass weeds by decreasing and blocking cell division in the young root system. The result is death of the young seedling weed shortly after germination due to the failure of the root system to develop.

Pre-emergent herbicides can be purchased in easy to apply granular forms and liquids and are usually applied 2 to 3 times per year, depending on rain fall and temperature.

IMPORTANT:The most common error users make when applying a preemergence herbicide involves application timing. Usually, applications are made much earlier than necessary to achieve optimum performance, which could be a waste of money.  Don't rely on artificial signals or old wives tails such as when the forsythia blooms. ( Buy several inexpensive soil thermometers, place them at strategic locations around the property at a soil depth of 2 inches and let science be your guide. When they record in excess of 50 degrees during mid afternoon for 3 to 4 consecutive days, make your application.
