Tips for Caring for the Scotts Easy Green Spreader

Clean the Spreader

As you use the spreader, it tends to gather dirt that might affect its performance. But you can avoid future problems by removing the mess with a quick wash.

Lubricate the Spreader with Oil

Apply some lubricant to the movable parts of the spreader. With the right oil, your spreader will work perfectly for longer periods.

Break Lumpy Fertilizers

Since lumpy chunks of fertilizer do not work well with spreaders, it would help if you broke the hardened pieces into smaller bits. You can start by using a hammer or a tough piece of wood.
