REASONS TO SCARIFY YOUR LAWN
- If you have too much thatch in your lawn, this will cause deterioration in the quality of your lawn as it forms a spongy layer that chokes the lawn.
- Removing this build-up of unwated thatch debris encourages fresh, more resilient grass to grow.
- Using a scarifier on your lawn will remove the moss and will make future moss ingression easier to control.
- Scarifying can rejuvenate a tired lawn and create enough space in the top layer of soil for over-seeding as part of the renovation process.
- Reducing thatch also makes mowing your lawn easier as the top layer of soil and lawn will be less spongy.
WHEN TO USE YOUR SCARIFIER
The best time of year to scarify your lawn is in autum, as a prompt recovery is the key to success. Ideally the soil should be warm and moist, and autumn is often the only time of year that we will have these conditions. These conditions are necessary as when you scarify your lawn it will remove a large volume of thatch and your lawn can look very bare afterwards. It might be a bit of a shock at first, but your lawn should recover very quickly and with amazing results.
For most lawns, using a scarifier is an important part of keeping the lawn in good condition. The build-up of thatch, dead grass, grass clippings, and moss can accumulate a lot over time. Some lawns are more prone to the build-up of thatch and you will need to use your scarifier more regularly, whereas other laws may not need it for up to five years, or more.
TIPS AND TRICKS
- Ensure your grass has been cut progressively shorter over the last few mows prior to scarifying your lawn, as this will make the process easier and will ensure the grass recovers quickly.
- If your lawn is full of weeds or moss, you will want to make sure these are taken care of before using your scarifier.
- To remove moss from your lawn you can set your scarifier to a higher level and run it over the lawn before a deeper scarification, or alternatively you can apply moss killer around 10 days before you use the scarifier.
- Always keep an eye on the weather before you plan to use your scarifier, as you don’t want to clear up debris that has clung together because of light rainfall.
- If your lawn is too wet, the scarifier may pull up healthy grass by the roots instead of just removing the unwanted thatch and moss.
