The Secret to the Spray: Ortho Dial n’ Spray

8 comments

Are you ready to simplify your fertilizing step in your lawn care? We take pride in our fertilizer formula, but if you want to take your lawn to the next level, you need a powerful sprayer to back up our powerful nutrients. Here’s the secret: use the Ortho Dial n’ Spray.

Super Sprayer

The Ortho Dial n’ Spray has a 32-ounce container for your Simple Lawn Solutions fertilizer. Simply unscrew the cap, and fill with your desired fertilizer or Lawn Booster. With the Ortho Dial n’ Spray, you can change the concentration for different areas of your lawn. If you are covering 1,000 square feet of your lawn, you want to fill your Ortho Dial n’ Spray with 10 ounces before you connect your hose. If you are fertilizing your garden, you may only be covering 200 square feet, so you only need two ounces. The marked container on Ortho Dial n’ Spray allows you to easily measure out Simple Lawn Solutions products for your lawn, regardless of size. The spray, no matter how long your hose, comes out at 45 pounds per square inch of pressure, and two gallons a minute!

 Sprinklers.

Turn Down the Dial

When setting the dial, remember how quickly the sprayer works. With Simple Lawn Solutions Fertilizers, three ounces of product combines well with one gallon of water, so if you set your dial to three ounces, you will have to cover a lot of ground in 30 seconds! If you are using our Liquid Soil Loosener then set your dial to 1 ounce. If you don’t want to run around your yard, then lower the dial. You can always lower the dial, but you never want to raise the dial higher than the recommended ounces. If your dial is set too high you will end up with spots of lawn that are oversaturated with fertilizer. If you want an even, growing lawn, we recommend setting your dial to the recommended ounces or less, and adapt as needed!

Tips & Tricks of Ortho Sprayers

There are a lot of sprayers out there, but we have the tips and tricks to maximize your fertilizer with the Ortho Dial n’ Spray. Before you begin, test the sprayer by filling the container about halfway with just water. If your Ortho Dial n’ Spray is having trouble picking up the water, we have a secret for you: open the cap, and at the bottom of the nozzle straw, you will see a screen...remove it! This will allow any formula you choose to be easily picked up by the nozzle hose in your Ortho Dial n’ Spray. Start spraying close to the sidewalk or street side of your yard, and work your way in towards your home. That way, your hose isn’t dragging product along, avoiding a hose covered in concentrate, and a lawn unevenly sprayed. When your container is close to empty, the nozzle straw has to work harder to collect all your fertilizer concentrate. Make the final ounces easier by adding some water inside the container with the product.

You now have one of the best-kept secrets to fertilizing: grab your Ortho Dial n’ Spray and your Simple Lawn Solutions, and get to work!

Hi Loretta,
When using Simple Lawn Solutions Accelerate Liquid Surfactant we recommend following the guidance on our label which says: For each 1 gallon of
spray the solution mix (the water & the solution) and add 0.5 fl oz of Accelerate Surfactant. Since our surfactant is a foliar product, we recommend using a backpack sprayer and not a hose-end sprayer. If you have any additional questions, please email us at hello@simplelawnsolutions.com

Hello Joseph, thanks for your comment! You can fill the jar up and evenly apply it over the lawn and then once finished, empty the remaining product back into the container. Set the sprayer to the 3 oz setting, cover your lawn uniformly, and pour the remainder back into the bottle. If you have any additional questions, please send us an email at hello@simplelawnsolutions.com
