To dream of using a rake represents repetitive thoughts about a problem you want to fix. Doing the same thing over and over to fix a problem.
To dream of raking mud or grass that turns into mud may represent a problem that you keep doing everything to fix and it never works.
The dream suggests that you need to find or listen to new ideas, or give up methods that aren’t working.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing someone raking mud. In waking life he business had failed and he kept trying the same things over and over to fix it.
Example 2: A man dreamed of raking weeds. In waking life he had cheated on his wife and got caught. The raking of the weeds may have reflected his feelings about having to repeatedly explain himself to his wife who would keep annoying him by bringing up his cheating.
