Scotts® EasyGreen™ Rotary Spreader uses a spinning disc to accurately throw the granules evenly in front of the moving spreader. It covers a broad strip approximately 3m (10 feet) wide, so you can quickly treat larger lawns or paddocks. The large hopper holds around 4kg of fertiliser meaning less fill ups are required.

 

  • Adjustable spreading rates for use with a wide range of products
  • Minimal assembly required. Comes mainly pre-assembled
  • On / off control makes spreading easier
  • Made from durable lightweight materials
  • Fully washable

 

Coverage

The spreader covers a width of 3m. The recommended walking speed is approximately 8.3m in 10 seconds. Because the outer edges of each strip receive slightly less granules than the centre, we recommend overlapping the strips by approximately 30cm (1ft). This will ensure even coverage to the whole area.

 

Scotts EasyGreen Rotary Spreader – Directions of Use

  • Always wear gloves when handling any chemicals or fertilisers.
  • Keep any stored fertiliser or seed away from children and pets.
  • After use – pour any leftover product back into the original packaging and reseal. Wash the spreader thoroughly over the lawn to remove all product clinging to the spreader, taking particular care around the axle. Warm water may be required to remove stubborn residues. Allow the spreader to fully dry before storage. Lubricate the axle bushings regularly using a light spray lubricant. Apply liberally but do not use grease as this can cause product to stick.

 

Scotts EasyGreen Rotary Spreader – To calibrate the spreader for your product:

  1. Mark out a test area. Ideally this area should be 10m². 1 large stride = approx 1 metre. Try and be as accurate as possible as this will affect the rate of application.
  2. Weigh out the required amount of fertiliser using scales and a jug as a container. For example, if your fertiliser recommends an application rate of 20g/m² and your test area is 10m², you will want to measure out 200g of fertiliser. For the purpose of the test, we would suggest doubling this amount, this will make it easier to work out if you are over applying. Make sure the spreader is closed in the off potion and pour in the measure fertiliser.
  3. Set the spreader to a low setting. It’s better to under apply for a start.
  4. Start a couple of metres back from the test area and begin walking at a normal pace pushing your spreader in front of you. The ideal walking speed  is just over 8m in 10 seconds. Once you reach the test area, turn on the spreader and continue to walk at the same consistent pace. Move up and down over the test area making sure to turn off the spreader when turning to avoid spreading too much fertiliser.
  5. Once you’ve covered the entire test area, you will need to check how much fertiliser you have left in the spreader. Pour the remaining product back into your measuring jug and weigh this on your scales. Subtracting the amount of fertiliser you have left from what you began with, you can work out if you the rate was too high or too low. If you have more left over than expected try increasing the rate, too little decrease the rate.
  6. If your initial rate was wrong, do the test with a higher or lower setting as required. Repeat this test until you achieve the correct rate and then make a note of this setting for future reference. Please note as each product will vary you will need to complete this test for each product you wish to use.
  7. For grass seed such as our Jubilee Premium Lawn Seed, use an initial rate setting of 30 and complete the calibration test to fine tune the setting. Due to the bulky nature of grass seed you may require 2 applications at this rate to apply the correct amount of seed. Please note – we do not recommend using this spreader for Shadesman Seed due to the small size of seed.

 

To use the spreader:

  1. Calculate the area of the lawn in square metres by multiplying the length by the width (1 large stride = approx 1 metre)
  2. The area multiplied by the application rate will give the exact amount of fertiliser you need.
  3. Use a set of scales to weigh out the product and then add it to the spreader ready to apply – be accurate and do not be tempted to add a bit extra as this may cause scorching to your lawn.
  4. Select the spreader setting as calculated from the steps above.
  5. Walk steadily pushing the spreader while also squeezing the trigger on the handle. Release trigger at the end of each pass
  6. To obtain even coverage, spread half the required amount in a north-south direction, then the other half in an east-west direction

Your Delivery

Turf Online aims to give its customers the best possible experience by delivering the best quality products for sale in the UK. Therefore, all our perishable products are harvested fresh to order the day before delivery, and we even accept orders for next-day delivery!

Delivery charges and services vary by different types of turf and delivery location. Charges are confirmed at checkout before payment. If your order includes grass turf, topsoil, Wildflower Turf or Sedum mats, you can choose your delivery day. You should arrange for live products to be delivered on the day you will lay them. Reducing the amount of time the product is stored means significantly less potential nuisance when it comes to installation; certain issues will not have had a chance to rise. All other products are delivered within 5 working days (or usually sooner!).

How Is Your Product Delivered?

We recommend that you only make arrangements for tradespeople to carry out work on your behalf after your turf or other products have been delivered.

PLEASE NOTE: Turf, Wildflower Turf, Sedum Mats and bulk Bag products are delivered on a pallet and can only be delivered to the kerbside. 

Most of our products for sale in the UK will be delivered by being transported by a pallet courier that primarily uses 18-tonne rigid trucks that are built for reaching the majority of UK addresses. However, it is possible that your delivery could be made on a larger vehicle. If access or other restrictions prevent vehicles above a certain size reaching your address, or there are other offloading or parking restrictions which could affect the delivery, let us know in the delivery notes section of checkout so that special delivery arrangements can be made. Please make sure you double check the delivery postcode and address carefully as after your order has been shipped, it is likely we will not be able to make any amendments to your order or address.

Delivery is unloaded using a manual pallet trolley which is lowered to the road by the tail lift on the truck. Unfortunately, we do not offer Hiab (truck-mounted crane) deliveries. To offload the pallet, the surface must be flat and level. Since Turf, Wildflower Turf, Sedum and topsoil can be heavy, and the pallet trolley pulled by the driver has small wheels, pallets cannot be delivered onto soil, grass or gravel – a tarmac or paved surface is required.

Kerbside delivery means that our products for sale in the UK is delivered as close as possible to the delivery address you provide. Our helpful drivers will do their best to place your delivery where you wish, such as a driveway, but this is at their discretion. If your delivery address is hard to find or the property is a new build, consider using what3words to pinpoint your delivery location. More information on what3words can be found in our Help Centre.

What Issues Could Arise With Delivery?

If your product delivery cannot be made due to a reason you failed to make us aware of, the full cost of distribution and products will still be charged to you. We are proud that most of our turf deliveries arrive on time. Sometimes, circumstances beyond our control (extreme weather, road accidents, vehicle breakdowns or IT failures) can delay delivery, but we will make every effort to keep you updated in such an event.
