EverGreen Scotts Rotary spreader

All Lawns will Do

Scotts EasyGreen Rotary Spreader is probably the most versatile model on the list. As it is usually the case, it is almost about the spreading width and settings. The spreading width here can be set anywhere between 122 and 340 centimetres. You'll always be able to get the right amount to the right area.

A smaller detail that will help you with the largest lawns is the model's large chunky tyres that will help you manoeuvre through any terrain with poise and efficacy.

But the rotary lawn spreader's 32 different settings is what really separates the product from its otherwise inferior counterparts. Using these variable settings, you'll be able to apply granular lawn treatment or grass seed. The settings make it possible to cover the largest lawns, orchards, and paddocks. As far as domestic lawn applicators go, this is about as good as it gets.

The on/off switch has been conveniently positioned in the middle of the handle, so you won't have to bend and manually close the spreading holes with every turn. The spread intensity knob is very easy to reach as well. The only problem is that you'll have to occasionally calibrate it.

Again, EverGreen Scotts Rotary Spreader is the most versatile farm implement on the list. It will allow you to cover just about any lawn. You'll be able to work with powdered seeds as well as larger granular treatments. Plus, its construction is very well thought out. All in all, probably the best lawn spreader in its price range.

Westland Lawn Fertiliser Spreader

Improved Construction

Westland Lawn Fertiliser is, in many ways, your average, traditional drop spreader. That being said, there are many smaller changes here and there that elevate the product above standard spreaders. The spreading mechanism here has been improved to make sure the larger granular seeds do not get stuck in the spreader. The model's container has rounded edges, making it easier to pour the lawn treatment products back into the bag whenever necessary.

The spreading mechanism is not the only construction element here that's been changed. The wheels are particularly wide and sturdy. They will let you cruise through any lawn.

As per usual, the model's handle is detachable, a small detail that always makes storage and transportation a touch more convenient. We can extend a similar sentiment towards the built-in stand.

We cannot, however, extend these positive notes towards the spreading width and settings. They aren't bad but the 41-centimetre spreading width makes the model unsuitable for larger lawns, while its 10 supposedly different settings do not really differ that much from each other.

To rephrase our earlier point, Westland Lawn Fertiliser is a traditional drop spreader with an improved overall construction and many smaller changes that make the model more effective and efficient. Provided you don't have that much land, this is an excellent lawn spreader.

EverGreen Easy Spreader Plus

Sophisticated Dispensing Mechanism

EverGreen Easy Spreader Plus isn't the most versatile model in this selection but it is definitely one of the more well-balanced products here. Considering the price tag, the spreader's specs and characteristics are very impressive. Its sophisticated dispensing mechanism with 9 very much variable settings will allow you to always choose the right application rate.

All in all, the model allows for accurate application, preventing the products from escaping out the sides and landing on beds and borders. The container here has been designed using particularly robust and rugged plastic, so you'll unlikely be able to damage it running into pebbles and other obstacles.

The built-in stand will let you store the spreader vertically. On top of that, the stand doubles as a bumper, protecting the container.

The only thing that isn't necessarily sturdy here are the wheels. They're wide and practical but, at the same time, wear off after some time.

On the other hand, we can't say that we've any issues with the 53-centimetre spreading width. It will be more than enough to properly and effectively cover your average lawn.

In other words, EverGreen Easy Spreader Plus will prove particularly suitable for medium-sized lawns. The model is practical and the price makes the product especially appealing. As far as we're concerned, this is the best lawn spreader in the mid-range class.

Einhell UK BG-SR 12

A More Practical Approach

Einhell UK BG-SR 12 is a really good spreader and the only reason we haven't been able to put it closer to the top of the list is that the price-performance ratio here is a little worse compared to the previous models. That being said, it's not like the price isn't justified at all.

On paper, the model doesn't seem any better than your average spreader but the differences are there, you just have to look at the smaller but very much significant details to notice them.

For example, the double push-bar is more convenient than your average handle on just about every level, allowing for exact and user-friendly handling.

Sure, the model has but 8 spreading settings, nothing that we haven't seen before. But these settings are very easy to access using an adjustment lever that lets you effortlessly regulate the distribution rate.

Most importantly, the spreader is particularly durable. The high-grade, impact-resistant plastic container will easily be able to survive the rough and tumble of any lawn. The corrosion-resistant roller lets you use the model under any weather conditions.

Last but not least, the spring locks on both sides allow for effortless storage in minimum space.

To put it a little differently, Einhell UK BG-SR 12 will make it much easier for you to spread seed, lime, fertiliser, sand, ice melt, and other lawn treatment products. The model is particularly practical, especially as far as overall application and storage are concerned.

EverGreen Wizz

Multitasker Through and Through

EverGreen Wizz Year Round Spreader is a little different. As you can probably tell from the pictures, this isn't your average push-along spreader. You'll have to carry this thing around the lawn. Though it may seem a little less comfortable and convenient, there are many advantages that the model has over its push-along competition.

The spreading mechanism here is able to extend up to 150 centimetres, making it much more versatile than just about any mid-range spreader.

The model comes equipped with 23 variable settings, allowing for superior accuracy. You'll be able to direct the product only where needed, minimising wastage.

As the "year-round" part in the name suggests, you can use this little implement throughout the year. It is perfect for spreading grass seed and lawn fertiliser in spring and summer as well as salt in winter to prevent slippery surfaces.

The model's one-touch control is particularly convenient. There's a safety lock switch that prevents you from accidentally turning on the spreader during transportation, making sure you do not waste the batteries. That's especially good considering that the model chews up batteries relatively quickly.

All things considered, EverGreen Wizz Year Round Spreader is more practical in some ways and less practical in others. That being said, the model's a multitasker through and through. It weighs less than 1 kilogram and the ergonomic handle makes it easy to carry around the lawn.

What Is a Lawn Spreader?

A healthy, attractive lawn is a good goal to have in mind. But you'll need the right tools to achieve that goal. Lawn mowers and different edgers go without saying, these aren't the tools that require any extra advertisement. However, these things come into play much later. Before that, you have to make sure your lawn grows nice and healthy. To make that possible, you'll have to apply different lawn treatment products.

To do that, you will require a lawn spreader. When used correctly, these farming implements offer the most efficient way to distribute grass seed, compost, fertiliser, weed killer, and other lawn products onto your yard.

There are many small and not-so-small variables between different models. The spreading width will determine just how suitable the particular model is for different lawns. The spreading settings will tell you how accurate and precise the spreader will be with different lawn treatment products.

Other than that, it is the usual details, including but not limited to slight and huge differences between materials, construction, and overall design.
