I got 4 loads of horse manure from a farmer friend and spread that on my crappy lawn using his manure spreader. The grass that I spread it over is doing phenominal so far. Huge difference in grass growth between the fertilized area and just a foot or two away.

So, the question is the manure came out in lumps/clumps in spots. What is a good way to spread this out/knock it down? Do I use a landscape rake? Or just mow over it and have the blades chop it up and spread it out? Or do I go over it with a lawn roller?

We use a VERY high tech device specially engineered for this task.

It's called a 10' section of chain link fence material. LOL.

Seriously, we have used good old fashioned chain link fence all the time to break up small clods of soil for years. I've never yet found anything that works better.

Best of luck. ....
