Hints & Tips
Lawns are like us really. They need to breathe.
Over the summer, dead grass will have collected on the surface and flat weeds will have grown. And after recent wet spells you may find moss starting to show its ugly head again again.
These inhibit new growth and make it difficult for nutrients and moisture – especially moisture during the drier summer months – to penetrate to the roots.
If you’ve not scarified for some time you may be worried that your beautiful lawn has the appearance of a ploughed field after scarifying.
New shoots and increased moisture will very quickly lead to a much lusher lawn.
German garden machinery manufacturer Einhell make excellent scarifiers, have a look at these we have listed below.
The Einhell GE-SC 35LI Power X-Change Cordless Scarifier is a simple machine which delivers great results and relies on the latest battery technology.
This leads to a light and easy to use machine with Einhell’s Xcore motor powering 16 stainless steel blades to tease out the debris. As some of our customers have written…”a fantastic lightweight but effective scarifier” and “1st class little scarifier.”
It is built around a plastic body which resists knocks and bumps and also keep down the weight.
There are three depth settings – always start on the highest one first – and wide wheels would damage the lawn’s surface.
