    The other day I took my spreader out & spread Scotts Lawn/Weed Fertilizer on my yard. The grass was wet,(it had been raining), & it was misting Slightly. I ended up towards the end, taking handfulls of the product, & spread w/ my HAND.........Now, I have Large Burnt spots............Can anyone please offer any advice on what to do?........

    With bare hands--that is a no no. Scotts makes some great grass seed, Scotts "Pure Premium". Use the sun or shade version. This time follow the directions.

    That's not even a serious post. Read it closely. There is too much bait.

    That thought crossed my mind. Its been posted elsewhere as well.

    Can't believe anyone would be that *silly*

    It doesn't even warrant a response.

    this is a joke, right. Why did you spread by hand if i might ask?

    I've seen idiots do this before. Watched one moron put all 4 steps from Scotts down AT THE SAME TIME. Never underestimate just how stupid your average homeowner can be...

    Did it burn spots on your hands or spots on your lawn?
    :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    I was in a lesco one time waiting to be helped behind this really nicely dressed guy. He was asking the dumbest question i've ever heard. What's lime? What's irrigation? What do the numbers mean? I only need 2 bags?, i'll take 4 thanks.

    After he left, i asked, who was that moron? That's the director of affairs for donald rumsfeld at the pentagon. What?! :hammerhead: :dizzy:

    The lesco guys told me they get lawyers, accountants, doctors, bio-chemists, that can't grasp the concepts of lawn care. :dizzy:

    Scary, scary, scary.
    The DEP needs to control homeowners, not LCO's. I can guarentee that i'm not putting down any extra fert or control products. I can't afford to.
