Types of Lawn 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. Broadcast spreaders, also called rotary spreaders, cover a lot of acreage quickly. The material drops from the hopper onto a spinning disc that disperses it over the lawn. You should overlap the coverage to avoid missing any spots. What you gain in coverage you may sacrifice in control. That same spinning disc can also scatter the material into a neighbor's yard or into the street. If you want complete control, think about getting a drop spreader.
