This scarifying rake has a stainless steel head with a traditional tapered ash, wooden handle. The head oscillates to allow the rake to glide over the lawn with ease. The length (155 cm) eliminates the need for bending, reducing back strain.
These long-lasting, stainless steel scarifying rakes come with a 15 year quality guarantee. The rake's design works to remove moss, dead grass and reduces thatch. It also breaks the soil in preparation for overseeding.
Scarifying is the act of "dethatching" an established lawn. Blades act to cut through and remove the build up of thatch (horizontal growth) dead grass and weeds. Scarifying prunes grass shoots, runners and removes dead layers of grass and weeds. Cutting through horizontal growth encourages new growth and results in a denser sward. Dethatching provides your grass better access water, nutrients and air.
Scarify in late-spring and early-autumn to capitalise on the weather and ground conditions. Give your lawn the best chance of a fast recovery and only scarify when the grass is growing.
Cutting the top soil also helps prepare the ground for sowing new seeds.
Scarifying is as much about the preparation as the doing. Before you begin raking, it's a good idea to cut the grass.
Cutting the grass short gives the rake better access to the lawn's surface. It also reduces damage from tangling grass and the effort you'll need to put in.
Unless your working on patches, you'll need to complete at least one pass across the whole lawn. For heavy thatch or moss removal, you may need to make a second pass, 90-degrees across the first.
After scarifying, you may be left with bare patches. We recommend Miracle-Gro Patch Magic Grass Seed, Feed & Coir for patching up these areas. If your grass has brown spot issues, associated with pet urine, try Miracle Gro Patch Magic Dog Spot Repair.
