Hire Lawn Scarifier

Date posted: 24 January 2012

For those of you who aspire to have the perfect lawn, why don’t you hire a Lawn Scarifier to help you achieve these results. As part of the essential gardening tools for your lawn maintenance regime, lawn scarification is necessary to help prevent the build up of weeds, dead plants and surface debris which hinders strong healthy grass to grow.

Not only is it a cost effective to rent a lawn scarifier these days, it can also save you hours work especially if dealing with a large lawn area. Whilst some will prefer to scarifier their lawn manually using a rake, it’s extremely time consuming in comparison to hiring a scarifer. However, before you scarifier your lawn, you need to undertake a a few simple tasks beginning with mowing the grass so it’s nice and short before you aerate your lawn.  Although this can either be done by hand with a folk  to dig hundreds of holes in your lawn, it’s a very long winded approach and not as effective as if you hire a lawn aerator to help do the job for you.  Depending on whether you have opted for hollow or solid tines, this which will put perfect holes in the lawn, thus improving the drainage and soil texture by allowing more oxygen to get to soil and the grass routes.  Another advantage of renting a lawn aerator is that you are able to aerate a large garden in a relative short space of time. Once you have aerated your lawn, the next key step is to Scarifier the lawn. 

What is a Scarifier?

Scarification is also known as de-thatching is when you remove all the dead grass, moss and weeds from the surface of the lawn either by using a rake or a petrol lawn scarifier. This build up of surface debris prevents the grass from receiving all the nutrients it needs such as enough water, oxygen etc to encourage growth.  Lawn scarifiers for hire have blades that cut downwards (as opposed to mowers whose blades cut across) therefore cutting the thatch and also prune plants.

When should you Scarfier your lawn?

You should Scarifier your lawn at least a couple of times a year predominantly  in the Spring and again in the Autumn.  However If the thatch is building up often then you could consider doing some light scarifying to prevent to much build up of weeds and moss.  Scarifier hire is a an easy convenient solution to assist you with removing thatch, moss, weeds without damaging the grass.
