Raking

Rake the soil before sowing seeds. This technique is easier to learn through hands-on experience. However, there are some basic rules you should follow while raking the soil.

Firstly, select a rake according to your body size. Secondly, never lunge forward with the rake in your hand because this will result in an uneven and wavy surface. Rather, reach forward only about 12 inches and maintain the rake’s head parallel to your soil’s surface. Next, take a step back, squat down and then squint across your soil’s surface. Repeat this action several times to rake your soil.
