Seed and fertilizer can be spread with a three-point rotary spreader
The application of the fertilizer by spray, drop or rotary spreader
cannot be within a three-foot buffer of any body of water.
Application is faster with a rotary spreader because it broadcasts granular materials over a wider area than the drop type.
A rotary spreader does not provide as accurate and uniform an application as a drop spreader, but the distribution can be quite satisfactory if the proper overlap is used.
If you reseed your lawn, make two passes with a rotary spreader. Each pass should contain half the recommended lawn seed for your square footage of lawn.
Break down excess thatch by using a rotary spreader loaded with thatch decomposter mix on the lawn (Photo 5).
These are the rotary spreader
and the drop spreader.
Broadcast, fan, wheel-type or rotary spreaders
are designed for larger areas.
include a controlled opening that drops material onto a spinner, which distributes laterally in all directions.
