It’s easy! Just follow these steps:
1. Water your lawn a few days before fertilizing so your soil is ready to absorb the fertilizer.
2. Following the directions on the bag, fill your spreader and adjust the settings. You can use a hand-held spreader for a small lawn or a broadcast spreader for a larger area.
3. Apply the fertilizer starting with the perimeter of your lawn, then move inward toward the center, following the usual path you follow when mowing. Walk in straight, slightly overlapping lines to ensure good coverage.
4. Return any unused product to the bag and store it properly (again, check the bag for instructions). Sweep any fertilizer that reached the sidewalk or driveway back into the grass during cleanup.
