Can you spread compost with a spreader?
Correspondingly, can you spread topsoil with a spreader?
You can spread topsoil evenly and accurately over the lawn by using a drop-spreader, or you can spread topsoil simply by flinging it with a shovel.
Keeping this in consideration, can you spread manure with a fertilizer spreader?
Apply a thin layer of composted cow manure to the entire surface of the lawn. Use a fertilizer spreader or your hand to sprinkle the manure over the grass. The grass should still be visible once you have spread the manure.
Spreading topsoil across your yard may seem like a simple way to protect your newly spread grass seeds from hungry birds, but these small seeds cannot force their way through heavy earth. In fact, a topsoil layer effectively suffocates your lawn before it even has a chance to grow.
