Tom, depends on the size of the lawn. You can use it as if scattering seed by hand remember with those treatments less is better, to much you can burn the lawn, also watering in well essential or burning occurs. If you have a big lawn then a small push along spreader will do the job providing you do not go over the same bit twice, just take care when spreading.
Any good garden shop or centre will sell good feed and weed under various names, it is all basically the same formula probably packed by one large packer in named boxes, when I worked for ICI you would see the same mix go in different name bags, people would swear by a brand we knew they were the same.
You will have a better lawn by summer as the work pays off, the garden is up to you. I tell people to buy some larger pots fill them with plants or bedding and group them where the garden looks bare, it cheers you and the garden up, one good flowering plant can make a difference, plus pots can be moved around.
