    How to choose a fertilizer spreader for your lawn


    To most lawn experts, having one or two fertilizer spreaders in their garages is always a must. These useful devices help users easily distribute the required fertilizers and feed to their lawns with little effort. This is why you’ll definitely want to have one of these to work with. Aimed at beginners, our post will show you how to select the right fertilizer spreader depending on your preferences.

    Introducing the two main types

    When considering the mechanical aspects, there are only two main types of fertilizer spreaders: the broadcast spreader and drop spreader.

    Drop spreader – this is the traditional type of fertilizer spreader with a minimal design. The spreader features a hopper with varied sizes on top of its supporting frame. When you push the spreader forward, it would drop the fertilizer directly onto the ground. Not many professionals prefer drop spreaders since they’re quite slow to cover a large area, even with the best of products.

    Broadcast spreader – also called “rotary spreaders,” on the other hand, are used quite often by lawn experts who often have to work on large grass fields. Using a rotary dish that is positioned under the hopper, the broadcast spreader can cover a larger area compared to the drop spreader. However, they’re not easy to use, as the mechanics are quite difficult to control.

    The advantages and disadvantages of both

    Here, you’ll find the main advantages and disadvantages of having a broadcast spreader and drop spreader. Depending on your personal preferences, you can decide for yourself whether you should go for one or the other.

    Drop spreader


    For most people, the drop spreader is the easier one to use, as it comes with really simple mechanics. All you’ll need to do is load your hopper with some fertilizer and just push it around to cover all of your garden.

    In addition to this, the drop spreader also allows for the even and accurate distribution of fertilizer. This is quite useful if you want to control the amount of fertilizer being feed into your soil.

    And lastly, I find the drop spreader extremely useful for certain jobs that require accuracy. For example, if you’re looking to create a garden bed next to your lawn, you don’t want to have grasses growing out of your soil. This is something that can happen if you use a broadcast spreader for your grass seeds and fertilizers.


    The most common reason why people don’t want to use drop spreaders is because they’re significantly slower than the rotary spreader. Plus, you can only use this spreader effectively on flat and rectangular surfaces.

    Broadcast spreader


    For most average users, the broadcast spreader might seem like a better choice as it comes with better coverage. This allows you to quickly fill your lawn with fertilizer in just a few minutes. Plus, this spreader can work well on bumpy and irregular surfaces.

    The better coverage also reduces the amount of work that you have to do, allowing you to complete your tasks faster. With the top product reviews spreaders, you can even cover a large football field.


    However, what the broadcast spreader lacks is precision. Due to its rotary momentum, the seeds and fertilizer can fly all over the place, and sometimes even land on your garden beds.

    Depending on your preferences, you might find one of these two options suitable for your garden, and there are lots of Amazon products that you’ll find interesting. But if it’s possible, we recommend that you get both of them, since each one has its own advantages.

    Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again.
