Hints & Tips
Now the lawn is, hopefully, looking more like a fun place go out, do some work and spend some time, and less like the remains of a 1970s rugby match, it is time to think about how to really care for it and treat it to some proper TLC.
On these pages, in our knowledge base MowHow and in our regular e-letters, you will often find me banging on about scarifying. This is mainly because it is a lawn revitalising process that many gardeners have yet to discover and we want to spread the word.
If you really love your lawn, at some point it may well become apparent that it needs scarifying. Over time, thatch, moss and other organic detritus can build up under the surface of the lawn, stealing light, water and air from the struggling new growth.
A mechanical scarifier will pull
If you want to know more about thatch and scarifying, why not take a look at our knowledge base MowHow, where there are a number of articles that explain in more detail.
What you will need, for sure, is a good quality, powerful and easy to use scarifier that does not break the bank. This is where MowDirect can definitely help.

The scarifier’s 18 durable steel blades mounted on a revolving drum, remove any rogue organic material that is stifling the development of your lawn and is also capable of in a lower position (there are 8 depth settings in all) of cutting almost invisible slits in the ground to aerate and enable the water and air in. This can help also prevent compaction.
