What is a high quality model of dry fert lawn spreader. Also where can it be purchased at. Features I am interested in are easy to calibrate, accurate and even spread, durable and made of high quality material. Also are there any suggestions as to where to buy quality lawn fertilizers for home owner application?

Thank You

Unless you have a patio home with little sqft of turff i would suggest heading to home depot and purchasing a earthway broadcast spreader.pnuematic tires closed gear box easy calbr.. Around $85.00 would probally be the last one you buy... unless someone runns it

Look for a fertilizer who's pellets are all of the same size and shape, this in sures balanced feeding. Stick with the known brands such as scotts. Go to a qualified nursey in your area and ask for a fertilizer that will suit your type of lawn whether it be a fast realease or slow.

Lesco puts out a very nice fert. it is as good as scotts and is cheaper. You can get it at most home depots.

On the note of fertilizing and/ or applying various chemicals;
do you guys feel there is a benefit to be had by spraying liquid chemicals versus applying it in granular form?
Or is granular the way to go?

Granules last longer, less labor. Liquid works faster and better in compact soil, and more labor, but less expensive. They both have thier advantages, but I like granule fertilizers better.
