    It’s pretty much a 50/50 shot because I used it and it did nothing.

    That is the purpose of Preen. It won't harm existing plants. It is designed to a pre-emergent weed killer.

    It works. I used it for the first time this year. Follow the directions.

    Reapply every three months per instructions. Be sure to remove all grass and weeds first.

    P.S. Since you bought it at a garage sale who knows how old it is? It may have closed it's effectiveness. But, it is always worth a try.

    well... i think the company that makes it is Monsanto -( even if not- the Preen company does as well) Anyway...

    It’s the horrible toxic concoction that farmers use in air sprayer plains to over their crops to make them look pretty for box stores & polute water &everything around what they spray - usually killing land animals( bunnies, deer, squirrels, birds- Kids...They are all extremely detrimental to the water table, 🌟Humans- finding now they are causing types of Luekimia🌟 in Landscapers that have used those products for years.

    It does work, but must remove all weeds first, don't be chensey on it, water it right after you put it down. It does not work for 3 months, I have to reapply about every month. The best thing it does is it keeps my neighbors 5 cats from using my flower bed as a litter box, it keeps them out. Really, it does!
