I have lesco fertilizer 19-0-6 and I am trying to find out what setting to use with my Scott`s Speedy Green 3000 spreader. This is about the 6th time I have typed this same message. When am I going to get an answer?

I don't know where your messages went but they are not here.

Otherwise, welcome to the forum!

Your Lesco dealer might be able to give you a definitive answer. What I do when I am using a material that I don't know what setting to use is to experiment. I measure out 100 square feet (10x10 feet) and put the amount of fertilizer in the hopper that should cover that area (measure in pounds). Then I set the setting in the middle of the adjustment range and spread the fertilizer. Hopefully you will have some left over. Then, based on what is left over, I adjust the setting again and finish spreading over the lawn. I might not get it exactly right but it's a lot better than a wild guess and putting down way too much. Then make a note somewhere to remind you what setting you used.

Please try to remember that people here mostly homeowners too, and they are spending their free time helping others.

Is the fertilizer 19-0-6 with Dimension Crabgrass preventer? That make a big difference. I don't know of a 19-0-6 product from Lesco without Dimension.

Go to the site and on the left side of the window you will see Spreader Settings. The Scott's 3000 is listed.

Maybe when you go to the Lesco site, I dunno?

RE: spreader settings


I know. That was probably about 10X longer than it took me to type "Lesco Spreader Settings" into this miraculous lawn product I discovered called "Google" ;-)

RE: spreader settings

Is it a Yello LESCO bag? if so it is 19-0-7 with Dimension, used it this past week here in Virginia , I have a Scotts Standard spreader I used setting "6" and did rows 4.5 feet away from each other. HTH
