How to Put Cow Manure on Grass


An attractive, thick, and verdant grass is essential to the overall appearance of your yard. When nutritious fertilisers are put to grass, similar to the effects on other plants, the grass will grow to be thick and lively. Even if store-bought fertilisers are effective, many individuals choose to use a method that is more natural: cow dung. You can easily apply manure to even the biggest yards since it is not only packed with beneficial nutrients that will keep your grass looking its best, but it is also quite easy to use.

  1. Put on gloves, then scoop dung that has been dried off into the huge bucket. To produce a fine texture comparable to that of dry soil, use the hand rake to break up big bits of manure into smaller pieces until you get the consistency of dry soil.

  2. Put the bucket of manure that has been dried out into the hopper of the fertiliser spreader. In the event that it is required, use your gloved hands to break up any leftover big lumps of dung as you pour it.

  3. Adjust the flow knob on the spreader so that there is a slow but consistent flow of manure as you walk in straight lines up and down your yard, being sure to cover the grass in an equal manner. Keep topping out the hopper as needed until the grass on your property is completely covered.

  4. To thoroughly and uniformly saturate your grass, use the sprayer attachment on your garden hose to provide water. The application of water to the turf will help the manure penetrate the soil and reach the base and roots of the grass, where it may be used most efficiently.

  5. If you want to prevent dragging manure into your house or into your paved driveway or walkways, you should stay off the treated grass until the lawn has had a chance to dry up. Keep animals away from the treated grass until it has completely dried up.

  6. During the warmer months, you should reapply dried cow dung fertiliser to your lawn on a monthly basis in order to maintain its lush green appearance and good health.

    Because grass becomes dormant when the temperature drops below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, residents of areas known for having long, harsh winters need not worry about fertilising their lawns during this time of year.


    On your grass, you should only use completely dried cow dung. Because it contains a high quantity of methane gas, wet manure has the potential to destroy vegetation.
