Just make sure you use a product that has exactly the same spread rate and consistency or you can kill your grass and ruin your yard.
Why not just buy organic stuff with less chemicals? it wouldn't matter then I guess. I am new home owner and new to YARD stuff, but not at all new to gardening. I bought my house last fall end and the yard was in bad shape, so I am trying to get it fixed. need inputs please.
Home Depot[homedepot.com] has this spreader for $50. Might be able to print the Lowe's page and price match (they match Lowe's plus 10% more off): $30 - 10% (price match) - $25 coupon = $2. You could try to stack it with a $10 off $50 Lowe's coupon, but that's really YMMV.
Just like ink theses bags can be refilled by your self cut the top off the bag and fill with any thing you want seal the top with a bit of duck tape.
That's what I came here to say. It's not a great spreader, but well worth five bucks, and you don't have to feel locked in to their proprietary packaging. If anything, it makes for easy switching I you're switching between different seed/fertilizer without having to empty the whole machine. Cool.
Why not just buy the handheld spreader instead of this thing
If you have a large lawn, you'll spend more time going back for refills with the handheld one. When the price difference between the handheld and a traditional push one is $10, it's probably worth ponying up.
proprietary products suck. yes u can jury rig something to "work" but the regular product is like 2-3 times as expensive as their regular fertilizer and the bags are much smaller. maybe if u have a real tiny lawn (1/3 acre) this might work. but for a large lawn you would have to refill it several times.
