Is there a broadcast spreader trick?
I was advised to use a 19-19-19 fert on my recently hydroseeded lawn by my landscaper. I bought the product and everything seems okay EXCEPT the instructions say "Scotts R8A setting K 1/2". I have a Scotts rotary but the calibration is in numerals not letters.
I've spent some time searching and I found two wildly different answers. One said, take the lbs per 1000 square feet and use that as numeral setting (in this case, I'm looking for 5.2 lbs per 1000 so I'd set it to 5.2). Another post said, count the number in the alphabet and use that (in this case, K = 11, so I'd set to 11). Clearly, the second number is double the first
Also, do I cross hatch? Or if I chose to cross hatch do I use 1/2 strength setting?
I promise, I'm not trying to be difficult. Up until this point I've only used milorgranite. That's a much simpler process.
