Scarifiers help to keep your garden looking green and healthy by removing what is known as "Lawn thatch" and moss to allow nutrients to find their way into the soil and root of the grass. Lawn Thatch is the accumulation of grass and plant clippings that accumulates between the blades of grass and stop the soil underneath receiving adequate water, air and nutrients which results in the grass looking unhealthy.


Scarifying can be done all year round if necessary but in general the best times to do this are late Spring and Autumn.
