Always go across slopes when possible. You aren't going to be walking the same speed going up the hill as down, resulting in misapplication.....

Good advice here ... also, what I do (and it takes more time) ... I set the spreader at half the rate suggested, apply one direction, then turn and apply crossway's. This way you get a more even spread with no chance of stripes.

Look at the bright side....atleast you got HALF of it fertilized!
But on a serious note; no harm done...This is a classic case of a common error. Better too little, than too much.
