Backpack, pump-up and other single-nozzle wand sprayers are often used for liquid treatment application for spot treatments, small areas or home lawns.
Boom sprayers, or sprayers with multiple nozzles, are used to apply liquid products more efficiently to larger areas than with a single-nozzle sprayer.
Drop spreaders provide a simple and accurate tool for homeowners to apply dry or granular products to their lawns.
Rotary or broadcast spreaders allow for distribution of dry products, such as fertilizers and pesticides, to a larger area faster than a drop spreader.
