Frequently Asked Questions

What is a professional granular spreader?

A Professional Spreader would typically be described as having a weight capacity of at least 80 pounds and would have rubber tires.

Why would I get better results with a professional spreader?

Our products may weigh fifty pounds just like the bag of fertilizer sold at the box store, but because of the ingredients used in our products you will find that the bag size is larger.  As a result of the larger volume size the spreader hopper will be full to overflowing and in some instances will struggle to spread effectively.

What type of granular spreader do you recommend?

We have tested them all, but found the Chapin 8200A to provide the best performance for the money.  We have calibrated all of our products using this spreader.

What type of liquid sprayer do you recommend?

We would recommend the Branch Creek® Pump Free Sprayer System.  This sprayer allows the weight to be in your hand versus on your back and the battery powered head allows for more efficient application because there is no pumping required.

What is certified organic?

A product that is certified organic meets the definition of organic as set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).  This is the same standard that needs to be met in order for a food item to have the USDA Organic seal.  The word organic is often used on lawn and garden products, but they rarely meet the standard set by the USDA and in many situations the term organic is intentionally used to be misleading.

What is a 25(b) exempt pesticide?

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a list of ingredients that they consider safe enough that if a pesticide uses only ingredients from this list the EPA does not require that product to be registered as a pesticide.
