I've often thought about that method. In fact, Prizelawn sells a plastic one that hooks right up to the spreader. However, it never seems practical, and I find that measuring areas and working with a set amount of materials works for me. For instance, if a bag covers 12,500 square feet, I will measure off an area that size (on a ball field or some other wide open account). Then, I spread the material, and make sure that I keep track of how far under or over I was. By doing this a couple of times in the Spring, summer and fall we seem to get pretty close. It helps to go on a lined football field so you can use the yardlines as markers. This method works for me because some products go throught the spreader more easily than others. This way I can monitor each different product and what setting works the best, compared to what the bags say.<p>----------<br>Phil Grande - Soundview Landscape Supply - http://members.aol.com/slsnursery<br>Ivy League Landscaping - http://members.aol.com/scagrider<br>
