PREEN weed killer
Hi: I'm a novice gardener with a bit of problem of weeds in our flower beds and ground cover (pachysandra). Due to the prevalence of deer in our area, and the incidence of lyme disease I'm really not comfortable doing more than a little weeding in the sunny patches near our house. I used to have a great, adn reasonably priced gardener who used to weed for us, but he's moved away and others are charging a lot more to do it.
1. I've been told that PREEN is a very good weed killer that should be applied to the beds in early spring and will do a great job of keeping weeds from growing. Is that right? or is there anything else i should instead use?
2. The nursery told me that typically it is best applied early spring, but if i can get the beds weeded once now, then i can apply it even in mid-june and still see a big reduction in weeds for the rest of the season.
Could you please advice if this is all correct, or if you have any other suggestions I'd much appreciate it.
