How it works

  • Scotts EvenGreen Drop Spreader has a drop bar beneath the fertiliser hopper that turns with the axle. This bar has rows of granule-sized indentations along it that are filled from the hopper as it turns.
    It delivers granules in rows immediately under the spreader as it is wheeled along.
  • The most efficient way to feed the lawn because all of the fertiliser is delivered directly on to the lawn.

How 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
  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 correct spreader setting listed on the product bag.
  6. Walk steadily pushing the spreader while also squeezing the trigger on the handle. Release trigger at the end of each pass.
  7. To obtain even coverage, spread half the required amount in a north-south direction, then the other half in an east-west direction.
