Pre-em for landscaped beds?

1969 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  high leverage
I intend to plant several ligustrums, loropetalum, and arborvitate this week.

This is my first time with any of these plants.

I am trying to discern whether I can apply any pre-ems, such as prodiamine, simazine, or oxadiazon, to reduce the amount of weeding I have to do in the future.

Do you all use anything as a pre-em in your landscaped beds? Preen? Fabric weed cloth? Mulch? All of the above?

Just trying to plan on the front end to make sustaining this easier.

fabric, cedar or pine bark mulch, and Preen for me. Preen can be used in mulch, I don't think the normal Pre-m we use for lawns would work very well in mulch most need soil contact to be effective.
I should have prefaced I use the Preen with trifluralin
