After days of rain, I finally had two nice days for my lawn to dry out a bit. I put down 10-10-10 and Barricade pre emergent on Sunday. Then, it rained a ton again on Monday. Much more than what was called for. Do you think my Barricade has been washed away?

Thanks

Hey Doc,

Really looking forward to your power washer video as I was looking to get one to clean up some concrete in the spring. Also I’m looking to redo the shrubbery beds. Have you ever done a video about planning and re-planting shrubbery beds?

Love your videos!
