    What is the best way to topdress a thin layer over an entire lawn? Is there some type of machine that will spread soil evenly and make the job go a bit quicker or is my only option the old fashioned dumping wheelbarrow loads and spreading with a rake? Thanks.

    There are machines designed specifically to spread the soil evenly. When considering a machine for this job make sure that it will spread wet material. There are a lot of machines that spread dry material but very few that spread wet material well.

    Contact me if you have further questions on top dressing.

    sulston, if you do go the manual route try dragging a length of chain link fence behind your mower to spread the soil evenly. It doesn't work too bad and is easy.
