    I snapped a photo of this one while out working. Thought everybody could use a laugh.

    It looks like he thought it was a broadcast spreader judging by the tracks...what a moron!!

    I will say it looks possible that he used a broad cast spreader with a too wide of opening and too slow of speed and got too much product down...

    or just walked around the edge with the deflector down a couple times and then hopped back in the truck and took off..thinking he had enough overlap.

    A lawn of that size and configuration almost begs for a liquid feed. A correctly operated drop spreader will take too long and a broadcast spreader will throw granules all over the place, half of it will not land on the lawn.

    I agree 1000%.

    Liquid rocks on these "Tiny" lawns, and zero blower cleanup :)

    Most likely the home owner used a small broadcast spreader. Looks like a nice lawn for the Permagreen. A couple minutes at the most.
