Or better yet, 0-0-7 with .1 Merit. Easier to spread and (I think) cheaper.
Try this for a fert. calculator
I'm with Marc, use straight "Merit" only where you need it and fert. the whole lawn.
Do you guys find it difficult to spread less than three pounds of product and get an even spread or pattern?
It is difficult to spread low rates. And with the cost of the product--you need to calibrate carefully. Weigh it --try it --adjust--weigh it again and adjust. Of course i put tape over the two side holes and just use one in the center. I have to dial down five notches from the Dimension rate.
I have used a similar stratagy in the past and it is pretty accurate.
If you have a truly top-notch supplier he will let you use his warehouse in the winter. So you can get the rate dead accurate. He will have 1000 sqft marked off, a tape measure for swath width, scales for weighing, pans for collecting the pattern, and a stop watch to measure your speed. (Only for products he sells, of course. )
