Herbicide 101There are herbicides for every type of weed! To help break it down we’ve divided them into two categories: pre-emergent (prevention) and post-emergent (removal).
Pre-Emergent: More of a preventive tool, these herbicides are best for weeds that haven’t grown yet. Pre-emergent herbicides create a chemical barrier on the top layer of soil which coats seeds and prevents them from growing roots.
Post-Emergent: Use this herbicide to kill weeds once they’ve germinated. Post-emergent herbicides are applied directly to the weeds and will kill the weed from the root.
