Applying a Pre Emergent
new user here. first post on this site/forum.
I'm sick of looking at my shoddy yard every single year, which is basically half weeds and half some kind of Bermuda grass.
I live in Fayetteville, Arkansas (wooo pig) and my bermuda is whatever kind all the new home builders use (my lawn is about 3+ years old (was sodded)
Im going to attempt to make my yard look like something this year, and from what ive read a Pre emergent herbicide is the step I should be on right now.
I think I'm far enough north that I can still apply it and it be effective.
I have a Scotts Standard broadcast spreader.
I went to Lowe's yesterday and found a Scotts Halts crabgrass granules pre emergent only bag that was about $15 bucks (and i figured that size bag would cover my yard for two applications per year - once now, one in the fall).
The main ingredient in that is Pendimethalin (1.71%)
Is this a good product to use in your opinion?

in reading the list of weeds on there and googling the images, i get virtually all of those i think at some poing in the year in my yard. so im praying this will keep a lot of it from growing.
