    1 of 5 Stars  scary stuff if you have children or animals
    By Bee on March 22, 2012

    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!

    5 of 5 Stars  Great product
    By Kathy on December 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 on June 9, 2012

    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 on November 12, 2012

    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!

  • 4 of 5 Stars  Great stuff
    By David on June 12, 2014

    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.

    By Deborah on March 29, 2014
    Verified Purchase

    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!!

    5 of 5 Stars  Easiest, Best - Control in Phoenix for 12 Months!
    By Scott on March 1, 2014
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this on February 25th 2013. Today is March 1, 2014. I have a 1/4 acre lot (~10,000 square feet) in Phoenix, AZ with desert landscape and a 2,300 square foot home. I have ~750 square feet of grass I don't pre-emerge. Used about 2/3rds of the 50 lb bag last year, and had excellent control up until a month or so ago. SUPER easy to apply with a handheld broadcast spreader - less than 1/2 hr to do the whole place. MUCH longer lasting than PREEN. Much EASIER than liquid Surflan in a hose-end sprayer. I'm here to buy more! This stuff is awesome and even controlled the Sweet Acacia tree pods (by the 100,000s or pods) and Foothills Palo Verde pods, which are not controlled at all by PREEN.

    We live in the desert. For years, my hubby has fought the weeds that blow into our yard. For the first time, I heard him highly compliment this product...a compliment is tuff to get. He says it has drastically decreased his work in pulling weeds and he's so much happier about his efforts in spreading this for the first time. We are back to get more and are greatly satisfied!!

    This is my second purchase of this stuff. We used it last fall in all flower beds and almost no weeds this spring. This is a vast improvement over Preen. With it, the beds were covered with weeds each spring. My wife insisted I order more. She couldn't believe how effective it is. It is also much more economical than buying multiple small packages of Preen.

    5 of 5 Stars  Pre emergent for weed control
    By Janice on March 20, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    Snapshot was recommended in my adult ed landscaping class so I will try it this week on about 50% of my flower beds. It stops seed germination so need to apply about every 2 months and water it in. I will not use it in a food garden as chemicals like this are way too scary and side affects come out in 10 years. Do not breathe it or let it touch skin.

    4 of 5 Stars  Snapshot vw Casoron
    By Gary on March 6, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    I gave this 4 stars because I have not had an opportunity to see it work. I applied it prior to a rain forecast that did not materialize. It has not been watered in. I'm in Arizona where water should be conserved. However, this product should do the same thing that Casoron did for me in years past, yet it is considerably cheaper ($140 vs $218 for 50 lbs.) and the broadcast rate is almost exactly the same. Shipping was free and relatively quick.

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.

February 9, 2012 Emerson from Newark De. asked:

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.

December 31, 2011 Kim from Flowery Branch, Ga asked:

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.

June 12, 2014 David from Phoenix, Az asked:

QMust you water Snapshot in in ALL conditions?
I live in a desert climate - Phoenix. Is the issue with watering in to keep it in place without blowing away... or is there some sort of negative chemical change that occurs due to sunlight? I ask because I have used the product for 2 1/2 years now, and one time I DID NOT water it in due to the large size of my yard and the fact that predicted rain did not happen. Didn't get rain for 2 months. 8 months later the yard is still weed free. It seems to have worked fine. Comments?

A Pre-emergents including Snapshot should always be watered in (so that it can reach the soil level) to help stop the weeds from germinating. If they are not watered in or applied with water (using a water dispersible granule), they will treat weeds you are targeting.
