Setting a Spreader for Weed & Feed

Different types of fertilizer and weed and feed need different lawn spreader settings. The best lawn weed and feed spreader will have various configurations because not all fertilizers or weed and feeds are the same size or need to be spread in the same amounts. Each brand and model will vary somewhat in its settings. The settings on a Scotts spreader will look different than Menards weed and feed spreader settings. However, some general guidelines exist that you can follow.

Start With the Fertilizer

When determining the settings for a lawn spreader, it’s helpful to start with the type of feed. Sometimes, you can figure out the settings you need to use simply by reading the packaging. The instructions will likely be the most straightforward if you buy spreader and fertilizer from the same company, such as Scotts or Sta-Green. You can also check the website for the fertilizer company. Sometimes, you’ll be able to find guides online that can tell you the exact settings for any combination of spreader and weed and feed.

In addition, certain types of fertilizers or spreads have general guidelines for spreader settings. For example, in 16-16-16 fertilizer spreader settings, you want to use about a 1/3 opening of your spreader mechanism. If your spreader has 15 settings, you will set it to five. If you have to round, round up for lawn spreader settings conversion. Set your spreader to 3.5 (if available) or four for 10 settings.

Consult Your Spreader Manual

Another way to determine the correct settings for your spreader is to refer to the owner’s manual. For example, if you have a Sta-Green Broadcast spreader manual, it will list different types of lawn and garden treatments and recommended settings. It will also provide instructions on how to change the settings on the spreader. For example, Scotts has provided a complete guide on how to find the proper spreader settings.

When evaluating your spreader’s settings, consider whether it is a rotary or drop application, what the application rate is and what the other settings are. It’s also essential to keep in mind that every spreader brand is different. Vigoro spreader settings vs. Scotts will look different but yield the same results. Before filling the spreader with fertilizer, be sure the control levers are off. Many types of fertilizer are toxic to humans, so take precautions.

Lawn Spreader Settings Conversion

If you’re confused about your spreader settings, you can calculate and calibrate your spreader, as Westland explains. Calibration takes time, but once you’ve completed it, you’ll always know exactly how much fertilizer you’re spreading. Start the calibration by laying out a 10- by 10-foot tarp on a flat surface, like your driveway or garage. Fill your spreader with fertilizer, set it to a low setting and then use your spreader to cover the tarp. Try to achieve the same amount of coverage that you want on your lawn or garden.

As you work, you must make sure to keep track of how much fertilizer you’re using. When you complete the process, you’ll know exactly how much you used to cover 100 square feet of property. You can multiply that number by 10 to determine how much you need to cover 1,000 square feet. This calculation will help you adjust your spreader settings so that you’re utilizing the perfect amount of fertilizer.
