We apply to areas we pre-measure (usually via GPS) and then treat with just the right amount of chemicals to stunt most of the weeds that are set to germinate in late winter and early spring. But before we can do that, the snow has to melt, and the soil has to dry up---just a little.
What you may not realize is that preemergence chemicals require water to push the chemical to the top couple inches of soil, where it works on germinating weed and grass seeds. If it sits on top of the soil or gravel, it doesn't help much at all. For this reason, we want it to rain a little bit AFTER we apply the chemical.
Would you like to quit worrying about the weeds in your driveway, parking lot, or that back corner where the tool shed sits? We have fantastic, affordable programs that will give you free time while your neighbors spend their weekends with a bottle of RoundUp.
