Rated 5 out of 5 by from Destroys weed seed bank! Preen works. It's not perfect as it's important to remember to put it down before there are chances of weeds starting to germinate, and if it were perfect, I wouldn't have to remember to do this in time! LOL. I have a steep hill which has been a nightmare to weed; actually somewhat dangerous it's so steep. I started using Preen every winter (I live in CA where weeds mainly grow in the winter) regularly to control the germination of weeds around the existing plantings. It gradually worked better and better. I've been using it for about 10 years now. I think over that time the weed seed bank has been exhausted and now weeding each year on this area, which used to take about 20 hours per year, now takes about 20' or less. Many people may not realize that pre-emergents actually kill the seeds. They don't stop the seeds from germinating; they kill them after they start germinating. This is ideal because over time, it will gradually kill all the weed seeds in the soil surface. A key is to not till or otherwise disturb the soil because you'll just keep bringing new seeds up to the surface and you'll never get rid of all the weeds. Preen is expensive, but it has saved my lower back and knees. Well worth it. Oh and it has never appeared to hurt any of the existing desirable plantings. I wrote this review because I saw a bunch of one star reviews and actually got a bit mad. This is a good product and it can help deal with overwhelming weeding situations. I didn't want other people to think it didn't work. It's just that, like with any herbicide, there are instructions that need to be followed carefully and the target weeds and the timing of application are critical to success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money, so far! I have used this product for the 1st time this year after I redid my landscaping and this product seems to be doing exactly what its suppose to do, so far!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely worthless I tilled my veggie garden mid March then applied Preen heavily, raked and watered in. Tilled again mid April, applied heavily again and watered in. Planted May 1. Now weeds starting everywhere. Should one should apply it so thickly that it acts as a mulch? See pic and scroll in

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great job except this year! I have used Preen Weed Preventer and had success for the past 10 to 15 years. This year, it did not work at all. I applied it the same as I have in other years just before a rainfall, with the scoop, etc. I have never weeded more than this year! The same weeds it has prevented in the past are taking over my landscaping. I have talked to a few people who use it, including family members, and they seemed to have the same situation as I am experiencing. What happened this year? I use 4 of the 16# size. It was unfortunately a big waste of money and time this year. Disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of my money Tried this stuff a few times and each time same results. Weeds thrive on this stuff, never seen one dead weed. Just a lot more weeds. This years tried it in a much smaller area and same results. Weeds was less until I put preen on it than holy smokes they weeds are horrible. Pretty sure they put some kind of fertilizer in this stuff because weeds love it!
