Types of Spreaders

Applying fertilizer to your lawn helps keep it looking its best. The easiest way to distribute the fertilizers, is by using a fertilizer spreader. There are two main types to choose from: broadcast and drop spreaders. Drop spreaders can easily cover straight lines with little waste, but they must be used with care. Since the material drops straight down in a width equal to that of the hopper, striping can occur if the entire area isn't covered equally. Striping is the distinctive pattern created when youmiss or overlap rows.
