Your application directions are not broad enough. There are at least 10 to 15 companies making spreaders and...
and you only name 3 and my spreader is not one of them. My spreader is a Scotts EvenGreen. I don't want to burn my lawn. If I don't hear from you, I'll have to return the product to the store
We apologize but we feel you have gotten us mixed up with the manufacturer of the product you purchased. We do not make the product or put the options of spreaders on the label, we are just a retail company that provides the products. That being said, as you stated there is no way for any company who makes granular products to list and cover all the thousands of spreaders on the market on the label. You normally have to calibrate your spreader to the product you are using each time by setting it at a medium setting and walking a 1000 sq/ft to see how you get coverage. If you plan to use for example 1.5 lbs per 1000 sq/ft and you put your spreader on a middle setting and walk 1000 sq/ft and run out of product too soon, then you know you have it set too high. If you cover the whole area and still have product left, you have the setting too low. This will help you find the correct setting for your yard and spreader. You can also feel free to call the manufacturer directly to see if anyone there is familiar with the particular spreader model you have. You can reach VPG at 855-270-4776.
