Handling mulch

Recently I am finding that some times, the mulch at the surface becomes too thick and planting through it is difficult. If the mulch is too thick, seeds does not push through it and number of plants per unit area becomes small and it becomes a problem in uniformly establishing the crop. In that case, after cutting the grass using brush cutter or scythe, I move the excess grass to one side of the farm using a rake tool which has many teeth. I make sure that mulch is uniform and planning to move back the mulch back to the field probably after the crop is harvested and the land is left uncultivated.
