Every lawn has a build up of naturally occurring material known as thatch. This thatch layer if not kept in check can inhibit your lawn’s intake of nutrients, air and water; thereby affecting the growth and quality of your lawn.
A heavily thatched lawn will also encourage the spread of moss and weeds.
Scarification is the process of ‘dethatching’ your lawn, using a powered machine to pull out layers of thatch along with moss from your lawn.
Scarifying your lawn will also prune the grass to encourage thicker growth.
After scarification, your lawn will take some time to recover; usually around 4-6 weeks, depending on aftercare and weather conditions.
The heavier the thatch layer removed, the longer this process will take. That is why it is highly recommend to scarify your lawn yearly, to maintain a happy, healthy lawn.
