Would like to know if anyone uses snapshot to help keep the weeds at a minimum? Does it help more than Preen? How do you spread it and do you work it into the soil? Does anyone use a different pre emergent that would also work in my northern climate?

I am thinking about trying it next year after using Preen again this year would like something that works longer into the season as Snapshot should work 9 months. Wanting to keep weeding down as much as possible, gave up on mulching with shredded leaves because of tree seedlings. Should have asked about this next spring, but want to plan ahead.

Yes, I use it. It has the same ingredients as Preen, only a stronger dosage. Someone told me last spring that there was a generic for it but I had enough to use this spring. It is EXPENSIVE at the only place which carries it locally but it is not much cheaper online. The generic ( same strength) was a little bit cheaper.

Thank You! I am not not worried about the price after all gardening adds up, just want something that work well for an extended time period. My garden is full so not adding many plants as for each one added another leaves therefore the price will be worth the expenditure.

Thanks for the reply, that will not work for me as I want coverage for a much longer period of time to help keep weeds in control to also keep the work load under better control.

I can't find Snapshot anywhere around here. I wonder if the corn gluten would attract deer? I have deer. I hate deer. Grumbling

You can get pure corn gluten at a feed store, I have never noticed that it attracts deer. You may attract beer drinkers, when it gets water in, it can sometimes smell like a "kegger" is in process for a few days
