[Total: 0   Average: 0/5]You must sign in to vote How to Apply Fertilizer to the lawn = these are basic spreading techniques that will help you when you apply fertilizer and other materials to your lawn. Here is the link to the other important video I mentioned :: “How Much Fertilizer To Apply” The keys to proper application are: 1) Broadcast Spreader, 2) Consistent walking speed f 3.5mph 3) Start with a trim pass around all the edges 4) Walk the grid and throw material back to the wheel tracks of the previous pass. Of course, always clean up materials that got onto driveway, sidewalk or other non-target areas. Video Rating: / 5

    Hey Allyn, I recently started fertilizing my own lawn, mostly thanks to you. I was wondering, when fertilizing, wouldn't fertilizing back to the wheel marks cause overlap if the spreader is fertilizing 360 degrees on the first pass? Is this what I want to happen? Thanks.

    Been reading up on milorganite since i subscribed to your channel. Would putting down milorganite after my step one crab grass pre emergent be overkill?

    Won't this way cause OVERLAP? Should'nt you aim towards the area where the spreader reached and not towards the wheels?

    Would you recommend spraying down some Medina also onto the lawn? Been trying to thicken up my lawn this year. I have St. Agustine grass. Some spots are not has thick as others. I'm down here in Houston and I follow the Randy Lemmon fertilzer schedule. Have you heard of him? He's on the radio here in Houston.

    Allyn, do you cut off your spreader when you get to the trim pass or do you keep it open until you get to the sidewalk? I want to make sure I am not fertilizing the edges too much. Thanks

    Your videos are informative and entertaining, however I am really uncomfortable with one of the products you recommend ( Milorganite) . Are you aware of the ingredients of this product and where and how it is processed?

    Is it ideal to apply water (sprinkler) after I broadcast fertilzer? If so, how much water and do I water As soon as possible after I fertilze? Thanks

    Is the Milorganite or Scotts weed and feed pet friendly? Can they be in the yard hours after putting down an application? Thanks! Great video!

    Austin here ~ Here's an extremely technical question? Ready? Do you know the Model # of your Earthway Ev-N-Spred Spreader? Also, do you ever wish you had gone with the #2150 50lb. capacity version with the pneumatic tires? Trying to make a "wise" choice and investment. ~oO(♫)Oo~ PS. I've been looking at bunches of "broadcast" spreaders and do believe Earthway (with round hopper) is probably the way to go.
