Looking for an all round spreader for fertilizer for my lawn. Is it better to go broadcast for coverage or drop spreader to control where it goes? Thoughts?
If you have a small lawn and flower beds, then a drop spreader is the best. If you have a large lawn and no flower beds, then a broadcast spreader would be faster.
We use the stuff in our chicken and horse patures...
I always use a broadcast spreader unless your yard is very small then a drop spreader is fine.
As said above "drop spreader for small areas",but I would add-ONLY! I've seen my next door neighbor,year after year,use a drop spreader for his big front lawn. A week later he has green stripes in his grass. You can see where he "missed" with the fertilizer! ;)
I have the same size 1 acre yard,I use the broadcast type,and make sure to overlap a little,with no stripes of coarse.
Howdy. A cow, horse, chicken... lol but so true.
