Why Scarify?

During the autumn, the grass on your lawn goes into a kind of winter hibernation. Just like all plants, this is a way for the grass to protect itself against a possible bleak wintry climate. In the spring, if the temperature increases above 12°, the grass starts growing again.

However, in the meantime, the lawn has been neglected. Residue from mowing, dead grass and roots have formed a spongy layer at the bottom of the lawn surface. This is an ideal breeding ground for fungi and germs. This layer also retains water, so that the soil remains permanently moist, with this slowing down the growth of the grass. However, moist subsoil is also an ideal biotope for moss. This results in moss, weeds and grass all competing with each other in an effort to grow. Under these adverse conditions, a common type of grass such as English rye-grass, will often find itself being oppressed.

Fast-growing weeds and moss will take all of the light away and smother the grass. It is therefore important to intervene at this time. Spraying is a very efficient way of killing the competing weeds and moss. However, the layer of dead moss still remains in the lawn, and this prevents light and air from penetrating to the grass root. Moreover, this also makes the soil more acidic. This layer must therefore be mechanically removed. This is where a scarifying machine comes into action.
