Hints & Tips
One look at the lawn will tell you that winter has taken its toll. The vicious frosts and snows while not killing the grass has left it worse for wear with matted old and dead grasses impeding the new growth if not cleared away.
If you’re unlucky (and we certainly are here with some of our lawns) the mosses are taking over with a vengeance and now is the time to act if you are to have a lawn the envy of your neighbours this spring and summer.
There is a huge range of scarifiers available and we have a large selection some at very special prices.
We have a made a special purchase of the Einhell BG-SC 2240P petrol powered scarifier which at £249.95 will save you £200 on the manufacturer’s recommended price.
It has 18 double-sided steel blades designed to remove moss, dead grasses and flat weeds.
Lawns should be scarified on dry days. If you have an infestation of moss best results will be achieved if the lawn is first treated by applying a moss killer with a garden sprayer.
And remember that the first time you scarify the lawn, the debris needs clearing with a rake.
Subsequent treatments with a scarifier can be colleted – in the case of the Einhell in a 45 litre box which comes with the machine.
The Einhell BG-SC 2240P has an easy-to-start 118 cc engine, six height settings and large wheels to make is easy to manoeuvre.
If you have a smaller garden, remember there is a wide range of electrically powered scarifiers on our site as well as free scarifier attachments on Atco & Qualcast cylinder mowers whilst stocks last.
And if you have any doubts about the best machine, you can phone our team of advisors 0845 4588 905 or e-mail [email protected] for free and impartial advice.
