A good product for keeping weeds out of landscape beds and flowerbeds is Flumishield SC. Flumishield SC provides pre-emergent control of 31 common grasses and weeds and provides post-emergent control over 25 weeds and grasses, too. It’s economical, helps beds look better, and can help lawn care operators save on labor (both costs and time).

About the Product

Flumishield is a non-selective herbicide that provides broad-spectrum, long-lasting pre- and post-emergent control and efficiently kills broadleaf weeds and grasses in and around landscape beds. The active ingredient, flumioxazin (42%), helps prevent weed seed germination as a pre-emergent and quickly eliminates emerging leaves, providing months of residual control as a post-emergent. Lawn care pros can mix Flumishield with glyphosate or glufosinate to get quick knockdown with residual control.

Benefits of Flumishield for Lawn Care Operators

Flumishield kills weeds fast, helping customers focus on the flowers and desired plants in their landscape beds rather than weeds creeping their way up to overtake them. Flumishield is not only effective, but it also provides a long residual, which can mean less frequent applications and fewer callbacks, freeing up time to serve more customers.


As a non-selective herbicide, Flumishield is meant for directed sprays around established landscape plants. Desired plants may be injured or killed if the product comes into direct contact with them. Transplanted plants should be actively growing for at least 30 days before treatment. Always consult the label and SDS for application and protective requirements.

Applying Flumishield

Application of this product to soils with high organic matter and/or high clay content may require higher dosages than with soils with low organic matter and/or low clay content. Application to cloddy seedbeds can result in reduced weed control.

Pre-Emergent Applications

For pre-emergent control, apply eight to 12 fluid ounces per acre before weed emergence.

Post-Emergent Applications

For post-emergent control, apply eight to 12 fluid ounces per acre with a surfactant. A thorough amount of spray coverage is needed since translocation is limited. Try to apply Flumishield before weeds reach two inches in height.
