I forgot if I need to apply surflan now or in the spring. I used it this past spring and it worked well. Can I apply some now or is it too early?

SURFLAN is one of the best pre emerge products on the market. It does a great job of stopping most any weed seed from being able to germinate and grow. I use it on my Fescue, my mulch beds and even my flower beds. It won’t hurt anything already growing and a good treatment will last 2-3 months.

The best time to apply Surflan is usually Nov-Dec and then again in Feb-March. In some regions a third application may be needed but two a year seems to work for me. Learn more about Surflan in the following product spotlight video.

I have several pine islands around my property I’d like to keep weed free. I’ve tried using weed guards under the pine straw but the weeds just keep growing in the straw which is laying on the guards. Is there anything I can spray here that won’t hurt other ground cover or my grass but will stop weed from growing?

There are a few options as listed in our WEED CONTROL article. The best option would be to apply SURFLAN 2-3 times a year. This pre emerge liquid will stop all seeds from being able to germinate. This means you won’t get any growth from any seeds that find their way into the straw.

The extreme option would be to apply some PRAMITOL but as a soil sterilent, this would make the soil incapable of growing anything for upwards of a year so don’t apply any unless you are 100% sure you don’t want anything growing. Generally this product is best used where in driveways, parking lots, etc.

The last option would be a product that will allow all the plants to grow but at a less rate. EMBARK is a growth regulator which means it won’t kill anything; it simply slows the growth rate so you won’t have to mow or trim the plants growing in the areas that are treated quite as much.

We applied a pre emerge during the winter and it worked well. Its now spring and I want to know if I should apply it again. I think the label said it should last 3-4 months so I want to be sure I don’t get any weeds since the grass is looking great.

Stopping weeds before they ever grow is the best way to manage your lawn. Weed control is best handled before they germinate and the way to accomplish this is to use a good pre emergent. Though some products say they can last a year, it’s usually best to use one that will require a twice-a-year routine. This way you insure good coverage and protection in case there is something in your yard that makes the normal longevity of an application wear down prematurely.

As listed in the lawn section of our WEED CONTROL article, SURFLAN would be the best liquid to apply providing 3-4 months of weed protection. If you prefer to apply a granule, go with the WEED AND GRASS STOPPER. Both will last a few months and can be applied over most any grass.

Stopping weeds from ever growing is the best way to manage your lawn. It’s easier on all the plants involved, costs less in the long run and is quite effective given the excellent products we have on the market today.
