    :angry: people amaze me sometimes, we ferted a lwan today with winter fert and pelletized lime, the were a handful of leaves on the lawn by no means covered. the lady calls saying she cant belive we ferted the lawn with the lawn "covered" with leaves. i told here if she went out and can pick me 15 pellets off the lawn covered with leaves that i would do her fert next season for free. i tried to explain to her that its a pelletized product and 9 out of ten times the pellet will rool off the leave, even with the stightest of breezes, she just couldnt buy it, i told her ill refert the lawn when we do her final leave pickup, then she finally could leave me alone, sorry just had to vent, people just piss me off sometimes. tony

    I've had that happen, too Tony. Now I usually just wait and do it after the final clean-up. Just one less thing for people to ***** about. BTW bought the Cat 246 in April and we love it.

    Cat litter is just too expensive.LOL The lawn was already fertilized, so just to pacify her, you can set the spreader on 2 and have at it!
