That should only take about 2 minutes.
Well this shows my lack of experience. I've only done small yards so far. If it is something that big then yes will be more money and I guess it wouldn't be by the hour. When I say 20 minutes to do that I'm adding in the time for me to go get fertilizer, etc.. I don't store anything in my garage as it is crowded enough with equipment.

I use a simple Scotts spreader. What do you use if it is a 11k s.f. lawn?

I use this for everything:

I should have gone with the Andersons SR-2000 but I didn't have the cash at the time.

I may step up to a PermaGreen some day.
