Hello! We just purchased a new home with a lawn that's somewhere between 3/4 and 1 acre. I'd like to get some fertilizer down this fall, but am needing to buy a spreader since my current spreader is a 24" scotts drop from about 1950. It's a solid built machine, but a tad slow for my new lawn.
So I'm looking for suggestions. My first question is a push vs. pull broadcast spreader. How big of a lawn is too big for a push spreader? My lawn is somewhat rolling, with some curves/beds, so it seems a push spreader would give me a bit more control than towing behind a lawn tractor. But the pull behind just seems so much easier.
If you had an acre to fertilize and had the choice, which way would you go?
