How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Place your spreader setting on a low setting (usually one-fourth of the spreader setting range or less). Spread the material over a 50 x 20-foot area (1,000 square feet). If there is material left over, increase your setting. If you come up short, decrease your setting.
If you are using a drop spreader, such as Scott`s Classic Drop Spreader, and using a Yard Mastery granular fertilizer, you will want to set your spreader at a 7.
You can also find spreader settings on our product information pages (Lawn Food, Grass Seed, Weed Control, and Insect, Grub & Disease Control). Spreader settings can be found when downloading the label under the “Specs & Details section” on the product information pages.
In general, the smaller you set your spreader setting the smaller the hole and the slower the material releases from the hopper. There are many different brands of spreaders on the market, and, new or old, it is highly recommended to properly calibrate your spreader before the first use in the spring.
For overseeding an existing lawn, we recommend a sowing rate of 35g per m2, and for sowing a new lawn from scratch we recommend a sowing rate of 50g per m2.
The numbers stand for an application rate. A bag of commercial fertilizer will usually have numbers for where to set either broadcast or drop spreaders to get the recommended amount of fertilizer laid down. The numbers on the bag may be different for various brands of spreaders.
The setting that you will use when applying Bifen Granules with a Scotts Edgeguard DLX is a 2 or a 3 depending on how quickly you walk.
The spreader constant is the number of sensor pulses divided by per cubic foot of material discharged per revolution (CFR).
What setting do I use on a rotary spreader to apply Ferti-Lome Centipede Lawn Fertilizer 15-0-15? You would apply the Ferti-Lome Centipede Lawn Fertilizer 15-0-15 at a rate of 4 lbs per 1,000 square feet.
Spreaders are used to evenly distribute fertilizer and grass seed across your lawn. There are two types: drop and broadcast, also known as a rotary spreader. There are two types of broadcast spreaders: walk-behind and hand-held.
The recommended spreader setting for Pennington All Purpose Fertilizer 19-19-19 is based upon the amount of nitrogen in the bag. The bag will cover 9500 sq. ft. so you will need approximately 9.

I have an older scotts drop spreader, called a precision flow control model and do not know what settings to use with the Scotts turf builder I have purchased.
ANSWER : Hi,
The best way is to just place a small amount… like 5 lb in the hopper…start with it barely open and see how far you get,,, then compute from there what you need…
The settings they give you are guesamates at best and are often set to place too much… why not??? they are selling you a product!!
