Why should I scarify my lawn?
Next to regular mowing, scarifying is the most important task you can tackle to achieve the best possible lawn. Dead grass, roots and other matter (thatch), can choke a lawn by robbing the soil of air, water and essential nutrients, so it’s important to scarify your lawn to remove dead leaves and thatch build up. This allows air and light to get through and will improve the grass and soil condition of your lawn.
The best time to scarify your lawn is in the autumn, before applying fertiliser, or in mid-spring as the grass starts to grow. Treat any moss problem before scarifying. After scarifying, your lawn will look ragged but will recover quickly, as new grass will fill in any bald patches. If extensive patches occur, re-seed where necessary.
