Take a long 2x4 with 2 guys or gals, lay it flat on the ground and start working it back and forth as you steadily push it forward while on the ground.

First take and iron rake and level the obvious low or high spots.

I usually order crush and run stone, after it's packed I top with regular sand. They also sell similar products by the bag I believe you could get at most box stores.
