Using Broadcast Spreaders to Fertilize your Landscape

by on May 21, 2014

Fertilizing your own landscape can be quite an ordeal and usually requires (or should require) a fair amount of research. Many Long Island landscaping companies have fertilization programs that have been perfected over the years by experts in the Long Island landscaping industry. However, if you’re looking to take on the project yourself, you may want to explore the types of spreaders that are available to make your task easier.

When it comes to fertilizing your landscape, there are generally two types of spreaders you can use: broadcast and drop spreaders. Broadcast spreaders are a popular choice for landscape fertilization projects for a few reasons. One reason why many homeowners prefer to pay a Long Island landscaping company to fertilize their landscape for them is because of the mundane, monotonous walking back and forth across the landscape. This can be a particularly tedious task if you have a large landscape. However, the broadcast spreader is perfect for spreading fertilization over a large area because the granules fall down through the hopper and onto a rotating disc. This disc disseminates the fertilizer in every direction possible, allowing you to spread more fertilizer over a larger area of your landscape without walking back and forth as much.

While you may be fertilizing your Long Island lawn, the plants, trees and shrubs in your landscape will be getting fertilized as well, essentially killing two birds with one stone. Although this process sounds simple enough, you will still need to figure out how much fertilizer is needed and when it should be applied. You may find that the fertilizer you purchased at the store isn’t as effective as more professional-grade products. If you want to rid yourself of the burden of fertilizing your own landscape, contact your local Long Island landscaping company and have the pros provide you with perfect fertilization.
