Hints & Tips
Lawns should be scarified regularly throughout the year but now is one of the most important periods to catch up on this task.
If you have not done this recently you will see that layers of dead grass have formed across the turf keeping nutrients and moisture away from the roots and stifling new growth.
This is a back breaking task with a tined rake but a simple job for a scarifier and one of the best available and an absolute bargain is the Einhell BG-SC 2240P Petrol Lawn Scarifier.
Designed and engineered in Germany this machine is suitable for lawns up to 1000 square metres and works through 18 double sided steel blades teasing out the thatch and moss.
The scarifier has a 45 litre collector and is powered by a 118 cc engine which us easy to start and much more convenient that an electrically powered one.
There are six height settings and the machine has a working width of 40 cm. It has large wheels to make it more manoeuvrable.
You may well find that relations will want to borrow it and the handles fold down to make it easy to get into the boot of a car.
This scarifier costs £279.95, a huge £200 saving on the manufacturer’s recommended price of £479.95.
Delivery is free the next working day and there is a two year maker’s guarantee.
