that would technically depend entirely on the fertilizer of course, but you really have to dump on the fertilizer to actually kill something in most cases. Over fertilizing is not so much the chance of setting your crop back, but the fact that your litterally throwing dollar bills away. It would be rare indeed if even your front yard needs exactly the same fertilizer accross the whole area,so some of it will be over or under fertilized anyway. Too much accross the whole area is simply wasting money because a lot of your nitrogen will be lost. In fact, and this is up for debate,some studies have proven that 99% of the fertilizer folks use is simply wasted with no benifit whatsoever. take for instance that spreader, i assume your using premixed pelletized fertilizer.good stuff if used correctly,but are you just going to spread it on top? if so most of your nitrogen is going right into the atmosphere,or is running off into a stream. a sprayer and liquid fertilizer,would be a better choice in this case. Its cheaper and will stay in your yard,and is in a form plants can use now. Not trying to tell you how to run your buisness here,i use one of those spreaders myself. but only when i can work or water in fertilizer. if you do use this,water it in good when your done spreading.youll still lose some but less than you would if it just laid on surface. many many folks,will tell you it simply doesnt pay to fertilize pastures of native grass and things. thats simply not true.how you fertilize is just as important or more so than what you fertilize with.like i say using one of these improperly is just like throwing money in the wind. if your fertilizing pastures with one of these,do it immediatly before or better yet DURING a light rain (The cover is a VERY important piece of this equipment).grass cant use fertilizer laying on top the ground,no plant can. the longer it lays on top of the ground the more you lose.
