I have a scots edge guard spreader and need to put on weed and feed at 4 lbs per 1000 sq feet what setting on spreader should I use


Hi Mike:
The setting will depend on the size of the weed & Feed pellets.
The package usually has setting instructions on it.

If all else fails, the rate is 1 lb per 250 square feet.
Mark out an area about 10 ft by 25 ft long.
The spreader cast is about 5 ft, so down and back should use 1 lb.
Set the spreader at a minimal rate and see how far 1 lb goes, then adjust the setting accordingly.

Need a setting for Scott's Speedy Green EdgeGuard mini


First, I went to the products website, in this case Lesco and looked up the spreader settings:
https://www.johndeerelandscapes.com/home/spreader-settings.aspx

Then, I went to Scotts website and looked up spreader settings:
http://www.scotts.com/smg/node2/SCOTTSCOM/lawn-care/lookup-spreader-settings/7800015-24900013-s

I cross referenced a product on the Scotts website that uses the same settings as one of those listed on the Lesco website and I found my settings that way.

In my case I was using Lesco Pre-M 0.86% 0-0-7 and wanted to apply 5.3 lbs/1000ft. My spreader was a Scotts Turf Builder EdgeGuard Mini with settings from 0-15. I found out by cross referencing that the Scotts Speedy Green 1000 and my spreader used the same settings. So I ended up using the recommended setting of 5.5, as listed on the Lesco website for the Scotts Speedy Green 1000, to apply 5.3 lbs/1000ft of pre emergent using my Scotts EdgeGuard Mini.

Hope this helps!

I have lost my instructions for my hand held spreader. The numbers on the side that control the outlet of whatever is in the spreader--do these indicate the number of pounds per 100 sq. ft?


Below is a list of spreader settings. You may want to call Scotts at 800-543-8873 and verify the product you are using is able to be used in a hand held spreader.
  • For fine grass seed (blue, rye, fescue) use setting 1
  • For coarser seed (tall fescue) use setting 2
  • For light fertilizer (Scotts fertilizers at a regular rate) use setting 3
  • For heavy fertilizer (Scotts fertilizers at a heavy setting) use setting 4
  • For pelletized fertilizer and ice melt products use setting 5

I need spreader setting to do 2.3 pounds per 1000 sq ft


If the product you are planning on applying has a spreader setting for a Scotts SpeedyGreen, or specifically for the SpeedyGreen 3000; you can that recommendation in your Edgeguard Deluxe Spreader. If they do not have a suggested spreader setting for the SpeedyGreen, or SpeedyGreen 3000 settings then this question would best be answered by calling Scotts directly @ 1-800-543-8873. One of our associates would be happy to assist you further.


We do have a general rule, called the 50 by 20 rule which will allow you to use any product in any spreader, but there is some work that will need to be done.

* Weigh out and Place enough material in the hopper to cover 1,000 sq. ft. (In your case 2.3 pounds)


* Place the spreader setting on a low setting (Usually one-fourth of the spreader setting range or less. In your case i would suggest about 2.75 or 3)


* Spread the material over a 50 x 20 ft. area (This is 1,000 sq. ft.).


* If material is left over, you will need to increase the setting accordingly


* If they you up short, you will need to decrease the setting.

first 40lbs per 2k of lime will do nothing, rate to chemnge ph 1 point is 50lbs per 500k which would be all the way open slow walk. for your application you should be about half to 3/4 open normal walk

I have a Scotts Speedy Green 2000 rotary spreader and want to know the proper setting for your Milky Spore 20 lb. bag (granular carrier). I have been keeping it about 50% open (Setting # 9 to 9.5) but it...


I have the same question, but have not found a direct answer. I have calculated an estimate setting of 4 or 5 for the speedygreen 2000. The Milky Spore is very simular to the fertilizer that I use. Milky spore says that 1lb covers a little over 300 square feet. My fertilizer says that at a setting of 4 it is spreading 2.6 lb per 1000 square feet (almost 3 lb per 1000 sq ft or 1 lb per 333 sq ft).
Now I may be totally off, but just bought the Milky Spore today and will apply tomorrow. I may look some more tonight to see if I can find an answer. I felt it was kind of bad that the back of the Milky Spore suggested only using a drop spreader!?

What setting do I use on the Scotts Mini Spreader?


Here is the rule of thumb to determine your spreader setting.

Place enough material in the hopper to cover 1,000 sq. ft. (Usually indicated on the bag of product, if not indicated, take pounds in bag and divide by the number of thousand square feet bag covers. Example: 23lb bag covers 5,000 sq ft, divide 23 by 5 to get 4.6lbs per 1,000 sq ft).

* Place the spreader setting on a low setting (Usually one-fourth of the spreader setting range or less).

* Spread the material over a 50 x 20 ft. area (This is 1,000 sq. ft.).

* If material is left over, they need to increase the setting.

* If they come up short, they need to decrease the setting.

* While this is not a scientific method for getting the spreader setting, it will be close.
