How it works

  • Scotts Easy Handheld Spreader works by spreading granular Scotts Lawn Builder fertilisers in a wide arc when the handle is turned. A fast and efficient way to feed the lawn.
  • If applying Scotts Lawn Builder + Weedkill, take care not to walk too close to garden beds - the broadcast application style may fling this product on to beds where it will adversely affect any plants it may land on.

How to use

To work out how much fertiliser you should put into the spreader:

  1. Calculate the area of the lawn in square metres by multiplying the length by the width (1 large stride = 1 metre approx)
  2. The area multiplied by the application rate will give the exact amount of Scotts Lawn Builder you need. You will find the recommended application rate on the pack.
  3. Use a set of scales to weigh it out and then add it to the spreader ready to apply - do not be tempted to add a 'bit extra for luck' because over-application may result in nitrogen burning
  4. As a guide:
    ¼ of a tennis court is about 65m2
    ½ of a tennis court is about 130m2
    An entire tennis court is about 260m2
  5. Select the spreader setting listed on the product bag.
  6. Holding the spreader level, walk steadily while squeezing the trigger in the handle and turning the handle.
  7. To obtain even coverage, spread half the required amount in a north-south direction, then the other half in an east-west direction.
