Hints & Tips
Grass has few enemies but one is moss. And this winter it has really got grips with some lawns, killing and engulfing healthy plants.
Before serious mowing begins, moss needs to be destroyed and teased out and the Einhell BG-SC 2240P Petrol Lawn Scarifier is an excellent machine for achieving this.
Benefiting from German engineering this machine has 18 double side blades specially designed to remove moss and dead grasses as well as flat-growing weeds.
These strangle grass plants and prevent nutrients and moisture from penetrating the soil and impair growth.
It is powered by a 118 cc engine and there are six working heights to select. The working width is a generous 40 cm to help you get the job done quicker.
Ideally lawns should be scarified every four to six weeks and the first time this treatment is used the debris should be raked up and disposed of. Subsequently you can collect it in the 45 litre collection box.
If you lawn hasn’t been scarified for a long time, don’t surprised at the amount of rubbish which emerges and don’t be worried that parts look grass free afterwards, it will grow back very quickly and it is the only way to get a perfect lawn.
This machine costs £279.95, and that’s £220 less than the maker’s recommended price.
Delivery is free the next working day and there is a two years less than the manufacturer’s recommended retail price.
