Always have and always will. I hate wavy mulch.

Every large companies does it. I have a plastic rake with the ends cut off to pat it down

Definitely don't tamp it though

We always use a "soft rake" after we spread out the mulch. This is just using a leaf rake up side down. Works really well. Levels out the dips and makes it look really smooth. Also we do tap the edges with a hard rake.

I take care to rake it smooth with my steel rake as I spread it. But to go back and rake it again would be sandbagging the job. Compacting with a compactor??????? Really??????? Sheeese!
