Grass Seed Spreader Settings

Once you have chosen the right blend of grass seed for your lawn, it is important to make sure your spreader settings are set correctly for either overseeding an existing lawn or seeding a new lawn.  The table below gives you the settings for both a Broadcast/Rotary Spreader and a Drop Spreader.
