Best way to get rid of weeds: preventing or killing?
Most weeds are prolific, releasing thousands of seeds, which fall to the ground or get carried by wind, insects, birds or other animals to other parts of the landscape. The easiest way to stop weeds from invading your garden is to prevent them in the first place. You can control weeds by using a preemergent, such as Preen Garden Weed Preventer, which keeps seeds from sprouting. If the seeds have already sprouted, you’ll need to apply a weed killer.
Most of these products are nonselective, which means they kill or damage the good plants, such as the perennials and annuals, along with dandelions and crabgrass. These weed killers come in granular or liquid formulas and are applied when weeds are above ground. The liquid can be used to dab individual weeds taking care not to allow any of the solution to touch desirable plants. Always read and follow the label directions of the product you use.
