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.
