  • Asked by Cristina from Pensacola, Florida
    09/04/2019
    Q
    Will Ferti-Lome For All Seasons burn centipede grass if too much is accidentally spilled while turning the spreader?
    And what setting should this be applied to centipede grass using a Scott's Edge-guard spreader if I want to apply this twice a year?
    A

    Ferti-Lome For All Seasons Lawn Food Plus Crabgrass and Weed can burn lawns if applied too heavily.  It isbest to clean/remove any overspills to prevent this.  

    Unfortunately we do not have the spreader settings for that specific combo and the manufacturer does not list that spreader on their bag. Due to the thousands of granules on the market and just as many different types of spreaders, you will want to calibrate your spreader to the product you are using and its application rates. You can see a short video on how to accomplish this below.
