    OK, Lesco is a good spreader but I what can I do about all of the seed or fert going to one side on hills. If there is speader that keeps all the fert in the bottom on hills, i'll be the first on in line for it.

    does lesco hav better drop spreaders than the crappy all plastic scotts spreader that is out there? all i am doing is small residential...i dont want the spreader throwing seeds all over the place (especially into the mulch beds)
