No. of Recommendations: 1

This weekend I did the grass. Went to HD, bought a drop spreader, bought seed (tall fescue...we hate bermuda) and starter fertilizer, and "topper". Dutifully spread it all out, per instructions. Then, time to water. I was told to keep the area moist all the time. A few minutes of watering at least 3x per day. So I do.

Well, the sprinklers appear to be blasting areas around themselves clear of any seed, fertilizer and topper.

These are what we have:

They spray in a vertical fan, and the bottom part of that is spraying into the ground. I already know I'm going to have to reseed those spots, but how do I prevent this from happening again?
