We have about 12,000 ft of lawn front and back. Accordingly I bought 2 bags of this. In March I applied it according to the Scott drop spreader instructions, i.e., 4. After doing half the lawn I was amazed that the spreader was still pretty full. When it emptied, I flipped it around and came to understand what the problem was. The granule of the fertilizer was often too large to transit the 4 opening on the spreader. And this was a new Scott spreader! I subsequently raised the level to 7, then 8, and still was able to cover the whole lawn with one bag. Today, just after a night rain (May 13), I opened the 2nd bag and used it, using 8 as the opening. Even then it spread thinly, and by the time I was done in the front I had increased the spreader opening to 10.
The Weed and Feed folks need to change their instructions.
