I believe that is how it is intended to be used. It will only prevent germination of any seeds present.

There are different types of Preen but for the most part, all the product does is to stop the roots of a newly germinated seed from thriving. As long as your plants are all perennials you should be just fine. It will be necessary to remove any existing weeds before applying the Preen.

The smaller the seed, the better Preen works. For instance, it will prevent grass seed from germinating but not bean seeds.
