Espoma organic lawn fertilizer

Posted by chris_44212 (My Page) on

I am planning on using this product for the first time and had a quick question. It says to use 12 lb/ 1000 sq ft. Does anyone have an idea on what setting I should use on my scotts spreader? I can't find anything in my other searches that even give an estimate

If there is nothing more to guide you and the manufacturer will not provide any assistance then you will need to measure a 1,000 square foot area, put 12 pounds of the product in the spreader, and try various settings until you find what works.
When using Milorganite in a Scotts drop spreader I use a setting of 16, as suggested by the manufacturers.

Organic fertilizers that are not pelletized tend to clump in a spreader. You might have to experiment as kimmsr suggests.

I use Milogranite and sometimes Espoma. I have a Scott's spreader and at the highest setting I walk slowly and still have more left in the bag than I should. You won't over apply and if u do it won't hurt the lawn.
