True it gives it a great finish spreading mulch by hand .and easier to train a new guy . but my back could not take it any more . I found it easier on my back. usin a pitch fork the same way i throw by hand. follow up with the back side of the leaf rake to smooth out . followed up with a hard rake to tamp the edges in .
