Evening guys! I need to start some major lawn renovating and need to start adding some top dressing. I have been looking at buying a lute but they seem really expensive. Does anyone have any ideas of a cheaper alternative? Many thanks!

I'd use a good birch besom. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Besom-Broom-Traditional-Witches-Leaves/dp/B004YAYBEI 

 

or something like this http://www.pvrdirect.co.uk/productinfo.aspx?catref=31069&gclid=cihuhma4olycfchhtaodrjaaea 

not perfect but they'd do the job and keep you fit

I use a plank attached to a wide rake.
I'm a bit fussy about my lawn.....I top dress regularly.
How about making one? A triangle of wood attached to a handle.
Or just using the back of a normal garden rake to brush in the compost. This does a good job

Thank you so much for all your great ideas. Like you all I'm a stickler for the 'perfect' lawn. I may just make one like you suggest Verdun and Brumbull. I'll keep you in the loop how I get on with it. Happy Easter all!

My lawn has so much moss, there is no grass left, it's like walking on a thick duvet,
