On the subject of spreaders, is there any easy way to prevent over/under spreading or is it just practice? Can't seem to correctly judge the distance apart I should be using. Does spreader make a big difference (currently using a Scotts)?

Last year, my first few spreads gave me green tram lines from overlap and when I tried to correct it using half-half in a cross pattern, I ended up with a checkerboard instead :/.
I think part of it is the operator and part of it is the spreader. The higher end spreaders tend to have a better distribution pattern and are more adjustable to what you are spreading. But if you use a spreader enough, you can learn how it spreads and adjust for it's imperfections too.
