    Is anyone using the SCOTT's Landscaper Products (fertilizers)? What is the difference between them and their regular fertilizer products?

    Not real sure about the products,but usually it is all the same just diff.packaging and higher price.
  3. I've used some of both Scott's products, both the Landscapers and the residential type products. The Landscaper products the same size granule size as most normal fertilizers, they work well in a rotary spreader, while the Scott's homeowner grades are fine granules, better suited for drop spreaders. Cost is a big difference too, the Landscaper brands were cheaper than the homeowner brands. As far as performance, I was never impressed with the "Turfbuilder" products, I do like the Landscaper products better.

    This is an important difference. If you have a broadcast (rotary) spreader, use the granules. If you don't have a broadcast spreader, buy one. Once you use one, you will never go back to a drop spreader. And non-commercial broadcast spreaders can be inexpensive.
