    1 of 5 stars  scary stuff if you have children or animals
    By Bee in Plattsmouth ne on 03/22/2012
    Verified Purchase

    I'm sorry I bought this. I should have returned it. The label says it all. Dangerous to humans. Completely cover yourself...head to toe. Wear a mask/respirator. Don't go in the area for 12 hours. It needs to be rained on...if not you must water it in within three days. I made a mistake and trusted a review on a garden website. I had to call the emergency line because my pets walked through it on accident. I watered it in in the areas the dogs might go...but they are farm dogs and they pulled away from me and ran thru the granular product. I won't buy this again. You can't rely on the rain to dilute it on a timely basis. So using this in an "industrial area" as it suggests to keep down weeds would be dangerous for any living thing if it accidentally wanders into the product. Even the dust is deemed poisonous. Why didn't I return it!

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    This product is not hazardous to humans or pets.  It recommends wearing long sleeve pants and long sleeve shirt, just like any other pest contorl or herbicide you can purchase professionally or over the counter.  It says nothing about wearing a respirator.  This product is only harmful to humans and pets if you ingest it, place it on your skin, or use it in a way that is not on the label.

    5 of 5 stars  Great product
    By Kathy in Phoenix, Arizona on 12/16/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I have used Snapshot for the last 3 years on desert landscaping. I put it on my ground in October and March every year. I am surrounded by weed-filled yards, but mine NEVER has ANY weeds!! This is a great product.  For one hours effort every six months I don't have to fight the weeds. It may be a bit pricey but I am saving a fortune in what I used to spend on the liquid spray type weed control products, not to mention the time and annoyance. I highly recommend this product!

    5 of 5 stars  The Best way better than Preen
    By Jim in Lancaster,CA on 06/09/2012
    Verified Purchase

    I used Preen 1st, it only prevents (I believe) 11 types of weeds, SnapShot prevents 110 (I believe) types of weeds, SnapShot Rocks !!! I use round-up, then weed whats ever left, then I lay down the Snapshot. It says it is good for 8 months I re-apply every 6 months (2 month over lap) I use a 1 quart (new) paint can (purchased at Lowes) with a few nail holes I put in the lid, for touch-ups. Kinda like a giant salt shaker. To the Paranoid reviewer,"I will buy your SnapShot. Please dont call Haz-Mat lol lol Hell on a bet I would sprinkle some of this on my food lol JUST KIDDING !! I have used SnapShot for over Five years, Nothing better. Please note you are creating and invisible barrier on your top soil, So if you dig or scratch the surface you will have to touch-up the disturbed soil to repair the damaged invisible weed barrier (this is how it was explained to me).(hence my salt shaker touch-up paint can idea) Email me you can have whats left of my preen for free, just pay shipping and handling (no kidding, I am NOT impressed with Preen)

    By Dave in Denver, NC on 11/12/2012
    Verified Purchase

    This product DID help keep the weeds out of the landscaped areas as advertised. What I did not know was it is NOT meant to be used as a lawn pre-emergent. I did not have good results on the lawn but thats because I went on friends recomendation instead of reading the product info. Read the info-NOT FOR LAWNS!

  • 5 of 5 stars  Best weed pre-emergent
    By Joan in Spring, TX on 10/02/2015

    I found this product on line when searching for a product with longevity! This is it. We apply it twice a year prior to mulching the yard and the results have been excellent. It is true that it forms a protective barrier, so be sure your plants are where you want them, apply whatever fertilizers or soil ammenders you normally use, put down Snapshot and water in. Then mulch and be done! Easy with great results.

    5 of 5 stars  Awesome Product for the Midwestern flower beds
    By Barbara in Dayton, OH on 06/30/2015

    Living in Ohio, we get our fair share of water and weeds. I use to have to weed my flower beds a few times a week. Two years ago I had professional landscapers put weed killer and mulch in all of my beds. That year I did not have to weed my beds, no not once! I called them to ask what they had used....Snapshot. I purchased this fabulas product, and have been using it ever since. Want to have a weed free flower bed with minimal effort? Buy Snapshot. This stuff WORKS!

    5 of 5 stars  The best
    By Gary in Bullhead City, AZ on 04/27/2015
    Verified Purchase

    I had been using Casoron for years. We spend our winters in AZ and weeds here are a big problem with the winds distributing the seeds all year. Casoron worked, but we always had a few weeds when we returned each year. I read about Snapshot on this web site and bought my first 50 lb bag three years ago. We have a large lot and our weeds are almost non-existent now. Just bought my second bag this year. It does not harm existing plants. The places we still get weeds are places where the rain water collects and apparently dilutes the product. But the weeds are minimal as I said.

    4 of 5 stars  Great stuff
    By David in phoenix, az on 06/12/2014
    Verified Purchase

    I don't understand the review of paranoia because of the safety issues. Wear a dust mask! Dust your clothing with the mask still on! Duh! It's not as if most any modern herbicide will kill you or give you cancer or your pet in one exposure, or 25 for that matter- especially through your skin. Unbroken skin is a great barrier to all sorts of stuff that isn't good for you injested. Hence the mask. Heck, sawdust is hazardous - especially walnut. Wear a mask for that too! As for pets, you should apply any herbicide, then water it in or before a light rain. This is to get it into the soil layer that stuff germinates in - just below the surface. That means it is no longer on top where your pet's feet are touching it. Is that an area where he tears around playing? Don't use it there. As for the product itself: I've used it for two years Phoenix area desert landscape with great results. Some yard areas have a sand/gravel mix in which the sand settles and the gravel stays on top and some areas are left natural desert - now without undesirable weed type stuff growing up. Snapshot doesn't harm established stuff, just new stuff that hasn't germinated yet. So if it's up and visible and you don't want it, pull it by hand or hit it with a stiff mix of glyphosate (Roundup or generic). I use Snapshot in 4, 6 month intervals and it seems to be having a cumulative effect. Each application I have fewer things I have to pull or kill. The only drawback I see is having to water it in. But, I THINK the watering in issue has to do with getting it into the soil layer so it can't blow away - not that it degrades or something witting there - at least in my desert situation. Maybe I'll ask that question. I've NOT watered it in once to see what happened. Nothing. I got a little rain two months later and the yard is fine 8 months later. The wind can't easily blow it away in my 1 1/4 acre yard because of the gravel on top. The snapshot is tiny grains that fall between the stones and get stuck there. So they just sit there and wait for rain. Very little tries to germinate until it rains anyway in the desert due to the dry conditions. Bottom line: Expensive, but a great product. I'd have given it 5 stars if it were 30 bucks cheaper.

    My hubby really loves this stuff cuz it actually works. It has saved him so much time chasing those weeds. We've had very few, unlike the previous onslaught of seeds blowing in. He has tried MANY products and THIS is the stuff that works. We have wasted sooo much time and effort using products that do nothing. I noticed some other desert dwellers posting reviews. It sure works well here near Palm Springs. I notice I am back for my third order and I'll be back again!!

QCan Snapshot 2.5 TG by stored and saved over for next year after opening bag?
Since it comes in such a large bag, I cannot use all of it in one year. Will is save over until next year?

AYes. You can easily keep a granule like Snapshot for 2 to 3 years as long as you store it in a cool, dry place.  The biggest thing is that you need to make sure no moisture gets to the product while in storage.  Otherwise it can remain effective for years.  Most people store it in a large Tupperware or 5 gallon bucket with a lid after opening it.

QWhat is the best way to apply snapshot to mulch beds: overtop of mulch or underneath?
for years I have been doing it overtop the mulch and seen to get pretty good weed control, with rain in less than a week.

AIf you have had good weed control by applying over top, then that is still fine to do.  As long as you water in the product very well, it should be fine.  However, the preferred method would be to remove the mulch and apply underneath and water it in well and then cover it back up since the ground level is where it has to get to work.

QCan Snapshot be put on top of pinestraw covered beds and then be watered in?

AYes, Snapshot can be placed in pine straw covered beds and watered in.  Just make sure that you use plenty of water so the snapshot makes it down to the soil level.  The best scenario would be to rake back the pine straw and apply snapshot and water it in, then place the pine straw back. If that is not feasible, then it can be applied to the top layer, just needs to be watered in adequately.

QCan Snapshot 2.5 TG be used around roses?

A

Roses are not specifically listed as plants that have been tested as tolerant of†Snapshot 2.5 TG. However, this pre-emergent is designed for use around established landscape ornamentals, so if the plants are well-established and healthy, Snapshot should not damage them. If you have a large area of rosebushes and are not sure of their health, then you may want to use the product around a small number of plants first to test tolerance. Be sure to follow the label rates and application instructions on the product label.

QWhat would be recommended settings for a Scott's push rotary spreader and a Scott's handheld spreader when apply Snapshot 2.5 TG?
Just received my first purchase of Snaphot 2.5 TG, and instructions only have settings of a single spreader which apparently is a commercial type spreader. Approximate or recommended settings for typical residential spreader setting are needed and would be quite helpful.

A

We understand that it is tricky to know what setting to use on your spreader, but since there are so many available on the market, it is important to calibrate your own equipment based on your application and the product you are using. For Snapshot 2.5 TG, you will use 2.3 to 4.6 pounds of granules per 1,000 square feet. Please refer to the product label for the best rates for the area you are treating and the weeds you are targeting. Please see below for more details on how to calibrate your spreaders. Many folks will start at either the lowest setting or at 1 setting lower than the middle setting. We also have an excellent instructional video here.

Almost all fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, etc have treatments in amounts of so much product per 1000 square feet.  So if you can figure out what your walking speed is then you know anytime you apply any product that calls for so much of it per 1000 square feet, you always set your spreader on this setting.  You can calibrate this by marking off a 1000 square foot (10 x 100) area and placing 4 ounces of any type of product of similar granule size, or of the Snapshot in the spreader.  Start with a low setting and start walking your marked off area at a normal pace.  You can adjust as you go and find the basic setting for you to apply the product over a 1000 square feet.
