When to apply pre-emergent

Have you been pulled by hand by hand or repeated repetition of weed killers? We all hope for a better way to improve the appearance of our lawns. A group of garden products that offer a break to that exacerbating problem.  So we will talk about, when to apply pre emergent?

Typical applications occur in early spring for the emergence of the hot season weed and in the autumn before the cool season weed. These preventive herbicides can actually be useful during most of the growing season. Several weeds germinate at different times, so repeated applications of the right chemical can eliminate most of the weeds in a lawn or garden. Pay attention to these benefits:

  • The weed is permanently eliminated because the seed may germinate, and the young sprout is killed. So the answer of this question, when to apply pre emergent is that a PreEmergent is activated in the upper layer of soil, where the weeds germinate, and by the design, the plant stops growing. This is an important advantage over placing new soil or coating to bury the seeds. Weed seeds are viable for years and waiting for a chance to recover. Pre-emergents break the cycle of constant regrowth of new weeds.


  • A minimum amount of labor is involved in the application of a granular or liquid version. The chemical is activated by applying water, usually within a few days, sufficient to swallow it into the soil. It may remain effective in the soil for a few weeks to several months depending on the ingredient used and its concentration. This advantage comes exactly when there are so many other gardening activities you want or need to give.
  • Easily trade with any remaining weeds that escape this treatment. (These poachers set deliberately and personally give you a sense of satisfaction as you finally have the upper hand!) The most important thing is that you can drop the remaining population weeds before they go to seed. Without relying on a preemic agent to reduce contamination, it always seems to be a losing battle to kill every weed before it reproduces.
  • Each consecutive season is the need to spray a post-emerging weed killer and may have gone well. The ideal status to completely eliminate weeds would also require you to take other measures to make your grass healthy, fat and strong, and compete for any challenger. In many yards, due to extraterrestrial infections, the need to continue with this herbicide will continue. But the benefit will be yours.
