depends on your budget. a scotts hand spreader is like 8 bucks and works great on small lawns without wasting a ton of product. i use that and a lesco 80lb spreader.

if you get a push spreader, get one with inflatable tires, not the plastic ones like the scotts spreader has. if you fertilize a wet lawn the fert collects in the plastic wheels and leaves trails everywhere
