Snapshot 2.5 TG Pre Emergent Herbicide

Snapshot specialty herbicide works around the clock for up to six to eight months to keep landscapes and container- and field-grown nursery ornamentals weed-free. It controls or suppresses more than 125 broadleaf weeds and annual grasses and can be used over the top of more than 635 labeled ornamentals. Snapshot is available in two easy-to-use granular formulations Snapshot 2.5 TG and Snapshot DG. 


  • Controls more broadleaf and grassy weeds in more ornamentals than any other preemergent herbicide
  • Provides excellent plant tolerance and long-lasting, broad-spectrum control
  • Bonds tightly with soil particles and is low in water solubility so that it won't move out of the application zone
  • Flexible application schedule can be applied in early spring, late summer to early fall, or immediately after cultivation
  • 50-pound bags

Coverage: 2.30 - 4.6 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.

    Best Pre-Emergent on the Market

    This is what professional landscapers use to control weeds and minimize labor. It's expensive, but it's much more effective than most any other pre-emergent on the market. Controls more weeds and lasts a fairly long time (9 months in rainy states, 12 months in dryer climates). You don't need to apply very much of it. Most people apply 2-3 times more than you need to. Get yourself a "Earthshaker" spreader by Earthway. Open it up to just 2.5 holes showing. And that's how much you need to apply. Just shake it over the ground. A 50 lb. bag will cover a pretty large amount of planting beds - more than most residential homes have these days.
