Hints & Tips
If your lawn is looking a little tired at the moment it could well be that it’s choked with dead grass and flat weeds.
Now the old way of clearing this rubbish out is with a tined rake, the sort you use for collecting fallen leaves in the autumn.
The modern way of getting rid of this rubbish is by scarifying. These machines have small knives which scrabble across the lawn and tease out the debris, leaving the new growth able to flourish.
At the same time it lets moisture and nutrients penetrate the surface to the roots so the new grass can grow more easily without being choked.
And this great little machine will do the job, the Einhell GC-SC 2240P Petrol Lawn Scarifier, a highly efficient little machine suitable for lawns around 1000m2 with its 40cm working width and around £100 less than similar machines on the market.
It has 18 steel blades driven by a 118cc engine to do the hard work and has six adjustable working height.
If you’ve not scarified the lawn for a long period you’ll be amazed at the amount of debris left behind and should leave off the catcher and rake it up.
This machine has been a best seller for some time and is one of our Superstars, with a string of great reviews, “Good Machine and Price” is the most recent, but comments like “excellent machine” and “Wish I had bought one years ago” are common.
The price is £299.95, a full £200 off the recommended price and delivery is FREE the next working day. Plus there is a two-year warranty and FRE oil.
